As director of Farmington’s Downtown Development Authority, Kate Knight is always looking for ways to answer this question: How can we lift up our mom-and-pop shops according to their individual needs?
It’s no easy task, and especially so in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We have a wide variety of business types downtown with different building types and tenants and owners. Depending on where you are as a business, how able are you to deal with COVID-19? A catastrophic event isn’t always in the plan," Knight says.
Enter Joe Grekin.
Grekin is a resident of Farmington, a self-described citizen of its downtown, and an attorney and member of the Schafer & Weiner bankruptcy law firm. (Full disclosure: He’s also the husband of Metromode contributor Jenn McKee).
