With Small Business Saturday just a few days away, we posed this question on the Dormont-Brookline Patch Facebook page: If you could open any small business in town, what would it be and why?
Readers had some great answers.
One reader said that if start-up money was available, she'd open a quilting store. Another reader suggested a yarn store. There were also ideas for music and record stores, candy shops, more thrift or consignment shops, and more stores offering specialty foods, such as gluten-free products.
One reader suggested Pittsburgh Popcorn and—countering how delicious that would be—another suggested a fitness center with a smoothie bar, where various nutrition and health classes could be offered.
Dormont-Brookline Patch also is keeping a running list of local small businesses that have Facebook pages. Click here to check it out.
