While new and renovated housing is the core of the community, Woodlawn has been enhanced by nearby businesses, retail amenities and services available to resident. This diverse group of enterprises provide commuters, students, and neighbors needed services.

The UPS Store is a business service center, providing printing, shipping, and other postal services. It's owned by Monica & Rex Ingram

"My wife and I chose Woodlawn for our The UPS Store due to the lack of true business that helps the community grow, thrive, and attract and retain homeowners and business owners alike"

Red Clay Dance Company is a Afro-contemporary dance company that tours both national & internationally. Vershawn Sanders-Ward is the Founding Artistic Director & CEO

"We remain committed to staying on the South Side. In this location we can add value to a historic commercial corridor and connect more deeply with the Woodlawn community"
