Q: What happened to E&J Florist?
A: Nobody knows for sure, said Main Street Manager Karen Greenspoon, not even landlord Joe Eiche. What is known is that Tom and Sherry Waldron, who owned E&J for some 10 years, sold their business. After operating the business for just a few months, the new owners up and left without a trace.
But this story has a happy ending. Sherry Gray is taking over the space to expand The Cottage, a shop that features cottage-style home decor, gifts and antiques.
