Among the early patrons was County Commissioner Lowell Moore and wife Donna. Moore said,”The opening of a new business is always encouraging news for our area; a new business brings employment, customers and sales, all of which is an asset to Tucker County. We need to welcome all new businesses and patronize them as much as possible.”
“We are excited to host another small business in our historic downtown. We urge residents to shop locally and support our local economy.” said Jason Myers, Parsons City Administrator. Myers also stated, “Grow your community buy local.”
The shop was booming with business and Jones stated, “I am speechless and excited for the future. We have already sold out of some items but there are plenty more left.” Chloe said, “I am excited and I want a cinnamon roll!”
