Shop owners, officials weigh in on state of the business community
WHEATON – A decade and a half ago, Donna Hessick was selling crepes out of a cart at the Wheaton French Market.
Today, she owns Suzette’s Creperie off Front Street. She has taken over three storefronts and established a consistent presence in downtown Wheaton. She said the supportive community in the area made the process of opening a business a little easier.
“The nice thing about Wheaton is that we don’t have many national chains,” Hessick said. “There’s a great camaraderie among the businesses here.”
