Beverly loves running a business with her daughters, saying it is a dream come true. The business gives them an opportunity to contribute to the downtown area and get to know the people in the community, she said.
”It’s not just about business,” she said. “It’s about building relationships with your customers and trying to find things you think certain people will like.”

“It’s a privilege to work down here,” Beverly said. “I can’t say enough about how much I enjoy being downtown.”
It’s “vitally important” for people to shop locally, Beverly said.

Downtown merchants offer a large variety of merchandise, she added.
“New Albany’s a wonderful town,” she said. “The more people shop local, the more downtown can expand.”
