Students team up with business owners to bring foot traffic to Main Street

    What does it take to bring foot traffic to Manayunk’s Main Street? A team of students from Philadelphia University suggests in-store presence is all about web presence.

    It’s one idea being floated by business students from the university as they compete to help Manayunk merchants.
