Welcome back to Owen for Business!  I’m Michael Owen, and in this issue of Owen for Business we’ll cover retail locations that offer some of the essentials in life such as a haircut, a shoe shine, and where to find an ice-cold beer.  If you see any new retailers or changes to existing retailers, please email me at tre@downtownny.com. Thanks!
