TOMAHAWK - "Well we've got a slew of them that have popped up lately," said Tomahawk Main Street Executive Director Aimee Dickrell.
A slew of new businesses in downtown Tomahawk.
"We have three newbies in like the last 35 days," said Dickrell.
Brogans Beauty and Barber and the Knot Haus Gift Gallery are both officially open, with the Diamond Rock Glass Studio set to have its grand opening next week.
"Our downtown has been thriving, and it has been bringing down more and more people every year," said Dickrell.
Knot Haus owner Char Andreachi has been a crafter for decades and felt inspired to open her shop to fill a void in the community.
"Last Decemeber when I couldn't find glue sticks here in Tomahawk that's what put me over the edge and I decided I have to open up a craft supply store now," said Andreachi.
She opened the store earlier this month and says she's already getting some support.
"We've got a lot of people coming in and out," said Andreachi. "A lot of people coming in to check what we've got."
Michelle Arnott and her husband hope to have that support as well by bringing something new to Tomahawk.
"We created a new technique being able to incorporate his crushed glass with my cut glass," said Arnott.
Arnott will have classes at the Diamond Rock Glass Studio to teach others her methods.
"We're hoping this will spark an interest in some glass artists out there," said Arnott.
Both Arnott and Andreachi are excited to see the boom in business downtown.
"I think people will embrace some new, creative places [in] downtown Tomahawk," said Arnott.
"There's been some empty buildings here for a while and they're starting to fill in a little bit, and I think it's wonderful for our community," said Andreachi.
Tomahawk Main Street hopes those new, creative places will keep coming.
"Anywhere from bakeries, to be able to have another retail shop, antiques," said Dickrell. "You name it, we can probably find a space for you downtown."
