Chris Starnes (store co-owner) explained, “we’ve got a waiting list started. We have a lot of people who want to get in here, but just don’t have the space. Nobody is wanting to move out. We’ve had maybe 10 total venders move out since we’ve started.”
Starnes favorite part about the business is giving opportunities to people in the community to grow their business.
Chris Starnes (store co-owner) stated, “we’ve given almost 300 people to have space to start their own business. That’s what excites me. We’ve got almost 300 small business owners. In a time when it’s tuff to have a small business.”
