Downtown York sees business boom amid lifting pandemic

Downtown York has seen a boom in new and expanding businesses in 2021, as the pandemic begins to lift and people go back to normal life.

10 businesses closed in 2020 and 2021, but 32 new businesses opened and 13 businesses expanded into larger or secondary locations. Central Market has officially filled all of its available vendor booths, a feat that the market has not seen in some time.

“COVID struck our businesses hard across the City of York. It is very promising to see this amazing rebound and commitment by entrepreneurs and business owners within our City,” said York Mayor Michael Helfrich.
