Greensboro becomes the fifth city to join the Retail Revival Program, which partners with local businesses to grow and expand their reach.

The program harnesses the power of technology and eBay’s global marketplace to support and grow small businesses, strengthen local economies and foster vibrant community growth.
A week after 9/11, New York Governor George Pataki and New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani approached Meg Whitman, the CEO of eBay at the time, for suggestions on how to raise money for victims of the attacks. Putting in intense weekend hours, eBay staffers created Auction for America—a website that allowed eBay users to earmark auction items to benefit 9/11 victims. In short order, the site raised $10 million.
