THE BULLETIN (July 29, 2019) — Apollo Ziembroski sells and services bicycles of all kinds. He opened a shop about three years ago in Danielson, but last month he moved to downtown Norwich, where his business has so far been much stronger.
Melanie Reyes takes pieces of old denim clothing and makes them better than before, using an artistic flair to turn each piece into a unique creation. After selling at craft fairs, she opened her own store earlier this month.
Ziembroski and Reyes are next door to each other in the former Bulletin building on Franklin Street. They are the first of what the Norwich Community Development Corp., which owns the building, hopes will be a whole collection of shops.
