Business Timeline

From Bloomingpedia

This page is a subset of the timeline information that only contains the openings and closing of businesses. There is a lot of interest in when a business got its start or end in Bloomington, and often little way to track down the exact date they open their doors. The list below contains a year-by-year account of Bloomington businesses that have come and gone over the years. Since there is a lot of specific interest and churn in the restaurant business, restaurants are separated out.
