Main Street Resources
By Jess Marsh via UNI SBDC
In my former career as a commercial real estate underwriter, I learned that location was the key to every deal’s success. So naturally, when I made the plunge into opening my own women’s boutique in 2005, finding the perfect location was my main focus. After driving by every available property in the Cedar Falls area, I knew that downtown was where I wanted to be. In 2007, when I opened my second shop, I chose a similar location in Uptown Marion.
