From a prior story on The Suncoast Post- More than eight years ago, a grassroots organization began with very few people. The Sarasota Downtown Merchants Association (now Downtown Sarasota Enrichment Association [DSEA]) was created to encourage community merchants to take responsibility and action for their businesses within the downtown core.
Since that moment in time, the merchants have contributed time and ideas to create events and downtown promotions. They have had strong representation at city commission meetings and, as a united voice, the DSEA has become a dynamic force in downtown Sarasota.
Our members are involved in all issues that affect our local merchants. We are frequently called upon to represent the merchants when important decisions are made.
