A local newspaper
published an article that reads:
It would have been easy to move out of downtown Dallas. There are other locations, even other cities, where there are more customers for a quilting and stitching business.
The common perception is that small town core areas are dying.
There are certainly just enough empty storefronts to support the cynicism.
However, Rachel Greco, the owner of Grandma's Attic, decided to do something different. She not only stayed downtown, she expanded. She has worked to become a destination store bringing people to the downtown area and has also developed a web site.
Janet Hutchison, the manager of the Dallas Area Chamber of Commerce, said Greco is an inspiration to other small business owners.
