The Bronzeville Collective reopens space for local creatives
MILWAUKEE (CBS) -- Many small businesses in Milwaukee are starting to reopen, including the Bronzeville Collective. After four months of being closed, the storefront reopened Wednesday, July 1.
The Bronzeville Collective is a space that focuses on artists or "creatives" of color. It highlights local talent and gives them a place to thrive creatively and financially.
"I think local small businesses have been hit the hardest due to the pandemic and when you put into a local business that money really impacts us immediately as opposed to big corporations, so shop local," Papyrus & Charms creative Lilo Allen said.
The Bronzeville Collective is following safety precautions and asks visitors to use hand sanitizer when you walk in, wear a mask and limit what you touch. There is also a limit of eight people in the store at a time.
It will be open weekdays noon to 6 p.m. and weekends noon to 5 p.m. It is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
