Becker College Closure Impact on Local Businesses

Subject

How the closure of Becker College will hurt local businesses

Description

With Becker College closing at the end of the year, many of the local businesses will be affected. Businesses surrounding college campuses such as Modern Muse Thrift, Boomer's, and The Prints and Potter Gallery rely on not just students but the school itself in purchasing art and decorations for campus buildings. After being forced to close, Maria Pappas, owner of Modern Muse Thrift, shares, "We rely on business from students. So with Becker College closing, that's going to be a third of the business.”
