ATCHISON, KS—May 24, 2022
The City of Atchison’s E-Community Program is pleased to announce a new loan to Purveyor. Purveyor, a modern-day general store offering mindful goods made by responsible artisans from all over the globe, is to be located at 715 Commercial Street in downtown Atchison. The $40,000 in E-Community Loan proceeds will be coupled with financing from Exchange Bank and Trust to fund the new retail store.
“Purveyor is a boutique for the mindful tastemaker,” said Ashley Gill, co-owner. “The curated store will have something for everyone and gifts for all occasions and ages. From home goods to apothecary, pet, gourmet foods, stationery, barware, clothing, and much more, Purveyor will be your one-stop shop for well...most everything.”
Since January of 2017, the Atchison E-Community Program has been offering gap financing loans for small business startups, expansions, and acquisitions. Everyday businesses like hair salons, retail stores, and auto mechanics can use this locally controlled, revolving loan fund as gap financing to make their small business dreams come true.
Purveyor is the thirtieth E-community loan processed by the City of Atchison. Those 30 loans total over $1.4 million in gap financing that has supported small business development in the Atchison community.
The funding for the E-Community Program is created through the sale of entrepreneurship tax credits, which are allocated to NetWork Kansas by the Kansas State Legislature. To learn more about the E-Community Program, contact Justin Pregont at firstname.lastname@example.org.
