Business space in downtown Bend is highly sought after. There is good news for the downtown. Downtown Bend Business Association (DBBA) Executive Director, Chuck Arnold says it seems like as soon as a business leaves, another fills in the space quickly: "And what we're announcing is: 7 new businesses coming into downtown. In retail restaurant spaces, the spaces that you see when you walk around. and the occupancy as well, for the end of the first quarter, holding at 93%, which is really, really strong, so we're very about that." Arnold says it's a testament to the staying power of the downtown area. He adds that there are several more new businesses waiting to move in over the next few months. Recently, three new businesses moved on to Bond Street, two businesses on Brooks Street, one business on Franklin an one on Minnesota.  He said that last Fridays’ Art Hop was a huge success and one of the most well attended, partly thanks to the weather.
