Main Streets Make Us Better





Main Streets are vital to the economic well-being of hometowns across America. They not only provide a sense of place to a community, they support small businesses and keep the flow of money local.

That's why STIHL and Independent We Stand are teaming up once again to promote the importance and strong economic benefits of these Main Streets and the small businesses that help them thrive. Please help us by nominating your local Main Street. The winner will receive $25,000 in cash and assistance to create a "Main Streets Make Us Better" event on July 4.
