This week eBay announced that Greensboro, N.C. has been selected as its latest Retail Revival city. The third such partnership of its kind in the U.S., Retail Revival Greensboro is a 12-month program for local small business owners looking to leverage eBay’s global marketplace to reach new customers around the world. eBay executives were joined by Greensboro Mayor Nancy Vaughan at the International Civil Rights Museum to make the announcement. “I am looking forward to our partnership with eBay and assisting our local entrepreneurs to expand their business to an online marketplace that is open around the clock,” said Mayor Vaughn.
In addition to the Mayor’s participation, U.S. Representative Mark Walker (R-N.C.) sent his congratulations to Greensboro on being selected by eBay for this important program. "The Gate City has just bridged a new partnership with eBay that will provide great opportunities for Greensboro’s small businesses and entrepreneurs. In North Carolina and across the country, we have seen the power of the internet in fueling prosperity and opening locally made products to the world. Thank you to Mayor Nancy Vaughan and the City of Greensboro for your hard work in helping secure the Retail Revival program's home in our community."
The eBay Government Relations team would like to thank Representative Walker and Mayor Vaughan for their support of this program. We look forward to great things happening in Greensboro.
