Denham Springs’ Main Street is Open for Business

Pictures of flooding in Denham Springs washed across screens nationwide in early August, but 60 percent of the town’s Main Street businesses are flood-free and open for business.

Denham Springs is proud to be one of the 37 Main Street communities spread across Louisiana, and the dedicated board members who oversee the town’s program have brought a tremendous boost to the entire area.

But after the devastating flooding that affected countless area residents, Denham Springs’ Main Street is facing the same kind of perception problem that plagued New Orleans for years after Hurricane Katrina – people think the entire town is still under water, when nothing could be farther from the truth.

In a post on August 31, Denham Springs Main Street’s Facebook page listed the following business as open and ready for business:

  • Salassi Jewelry
  • La’ Me Jen
  • Third Coast Realty
  • Bayou Backroads
  • Jake’s Florist
  • Sublime Salon
  • Rusty Rooster
  • Brushfire Art Studio
  • Cafe Dujour
  • Crowder Antiques
  • Mockingbird Lane
  • Benton Brothers Antiques
  • 201 Antiques, Heritage House
  • Amy K and Co.
  • DeLous Glass
  • Cavalier Book Store

Theater Antiques, Copper Hutch and Bees Knees are expected to reopen by October.

The post also sent out a special thanks to Louisiana Main Street and North Rampart Main Street, Inc. for arranging assistance and for helping to clean out the shops that were affected by the flood.
