And get a Downcity brochure into their hands.A report on Downcity's retail potential, made public by the Providence and Rhode Island Foundations, says these contemporary-minded people are the district's current and future customers.The report urges civic leaders who are brainstorming the future of Downcity to devise specific ways to make the district more appealing to the contemporary-minded. Other target groups would include office and government workers, tourists, university students, club-goers and Providence Place mall shoppers.
