TIFFIN, OHIO – January 19, 2015 – Melissa Perry Photography has made it public that they will be opening a new downtown studio at 70 E. Market Street. The lease was signed towards the end of last year, renovations are fully underway, and the business expects to open its new location within a month.
An Ohio native, Melissa Perry started her custom photography business six years ago, and the company has grown to the point of needing a storefront studio. After identifying the renovated 1854 Laird Arcade as her preferred location, she applied for a downtown Façade Enhancement Grant to assist with exterior improvements and was approved last month. Other businesses to open in the Laird within the last year include Gem Yoga & Life Enrichment, Burrito Loco, the Beehive Café, law firm Fraser Clemens, Knights of Columbus Insurance, Z Pulse Studios, and Level Up.
Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz was pleased with this latest announcement, “I want to congratulate Melissa and wish her well as she moves forward with her project. It’s fantastic to see how vibrant our downtown is becoming.” Downtown Development Coordinator Amy Reinhart has been working with the business and is excited to see it move forward. “Attracting artists like Melissa to locate downtown is part of our strategic plan,” Reinhart said. “We believe it enhances our brand and creates a more interesting visitor experience.”
