Revive Birmingham continues work

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The Revive Birmingham Street Life project continues today.

For one week, entrepreneurs and artists temporarily set up shop in empty store fronts. It's all to help draw in possible new businesses and foot traffic to the areas.

So far, we've seen it roll out in 3rd Avenue, East Lake and, most recently, Ensley. Jen Barnett runs ‘Freshfully,' a grocery store in Avondale.

"The marketing value of Revive Birmingham is huge for us. It's huge for us because we get to reach out to a whole different audience than what I have in Avondale," said Barnett.

Five Points South is next on the list, then Revive will move on to the Woodlawn area.
