About Us

The Glens Falls Collaborative was created in 2012 by a group of dedicated merchants who wanted to cross-promote and increase business flowing to Downtown Glens Falls.

The Collaborative has expanded to put on major Downtown events, create an incredible map with a large distribution, beautiful joint advertising, monthly mixers, and now includes restaurants, arts and nonprofit organizations, health related businesses, media arts firms, many different service providers and other area businesses.
