We think if they needed a combination of a Norman Rockwell and
Hallmark movie petrol and party store, they may need to look no
further than "Possum's (High Performance) Party Store" in Layton Corners, MI.
In today's podcast, CKiW iRADIO 76's CEO John Sarver talks to
Suzanne Lane, the owner of Possum's. In this lighthearted episode,
Ms. Lane talks about the uniqueness of owning an
independent business in small town
America in charming detail. Absolutely refreshing...
