Residents Enjoying First Thursday Matthews Downtown Crawl
Welcome to The Red Brick Partnership of Matthews, North Carolina! Downtown Matthews is the heart of a vibrant community of businesses, residences, and destinations that provide experiences to visitors through the many recreational, historical, cultural, and culinary arts unique to the town. 

The mission of the Red Brick Partnership (RBP) is to promote, enhance, diversify, and support the development of the downtown while preserving its rich history. The Partnership is focused on connecting, strategizing, and collaborating with businesses, residents, non-profits, and all members within the community to elevate downtown Matthews.

Our goal is to position downtown Matthews as a visible business district enhanced by an open, interesting and walkable streetscape. By connecting the retail business with a common theme and brand we create an authentic shopping and dining experience for the visitor. We plan to maximize our partners' assets while encouraging like/kind businesses to develop downtown. By doing this, we can create a destination for the visitor and Matthews resident. 

Matthews uses the National Main Street Center’s Four-Point Approach ® which includes: organization, promotion, design, and economic restructuring to implement a downtown organization and revitalization initiative.

The Red Brick Partnership was formed with the help of its original founding sponsors that helped to fund the organization start up. They are: BrookeChase PropertiesJamison RealtyJim Johnson, Lat Purser & AssociatesRoger Martin, Renfrow HardwareUrban Architectural Group, and the Town of Matthews.
