Eleven local businesses in the City of Bayswater will be sprucing up their shopfronts with attractive window displays, enticing entrances and welcoming lighting, thanks to the City’s Business Boosters grant program.
The City will contribute up to $3,000 for each business to deliver improvement projects that will enhance their shopfronts and encourage visitation. Businesses will contribute up to one third of the project cost.
A new street front façade at The Morley Local will bring a relaxed, picnic-style vibe to the front of their venue, while outdoor heating and festoon lighting will add warmth to the entrance of award-winning restaurant Chef and Co.
Popular Bayswater bar, King Somm, will transform their front window and Bedford nail salon Kustom Klaws has big plans for new signage and footpath engagement with its shopfront improvement project.
Pizzeria Amore Mio will use the funds to celebrate its Italian roots with a traditional Italian-style frontage and window display designed by local artists and nearby Studio 281 in Maylands will introduce an artistic Renaissance-style entryway to their gallery.
Pharmacy 777 Bayswater have opted to improve their street presence with an eye-catching window display and Insight Dental Ceramics will welcome customers with a refreshed entry featuring planter box and hand-made wooden signage.
Ginger Pudding, Lyric Lane Bar and Mulberries Café in Morley have also been granted funding in the program to implement shopfront projects that will help attract customers.
The shopfront improvement projects are expected to roll out between July and November 2022.
Grant funding is the second part of the Business Boosters program, which launched in 2020 under the City’s Economic Recovery Plan, in an effort to support local businesses on their road to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
