EAU CLAIRE, WI - Local business owner Kay Vande Loo saw the revitalization happening on Hastings Way and wanted to be a part of it. She came to the City of Eau Claire for help with that vision. Vande Loo owns Impact Advertising and the former Army Navy store building located at 1612 S. Hastings Way. She was recently approved for a Commercial Center Façade Loan that helped her secure the financing needed to give her buildings a "facelift." 

The City's Commercial Center Façade Loan Program was established to offer businesses financial assistance to revitalize old commercial strip centers by upgrading their facades. The $5,000 - $30,000 loan boasts zero percent interest for up to 15 years to help renovate the outside of the building.
