PAULDING, OH – The Dandelion Boutique retail store opened at 101 West Perry Street in Paulding, OH on August 1, 2020. Business owner Suzanna Hasch is offering a women’s and children’s clothing line. The store will carry many items Made in the USA. In addition, there will be several local crafters with items for sale as well as the ability for customers to place and pick up custom orders from participating crafters, providing a unique local shopping experience for both women and men.
The Dandelion Boutique already has an online shopping presence. Suzanna hopes to grow the business by opening the retail space and offering a customer loyalty program with discounts for continued purchases to returning customers.
Suzanna was born and raised in Paulding. Suzanna remembers what the courthouse square looked like as a child. “I loved riding my bike or walking uptown when I was younger, going to the Ben Franklin dime store for penny candy or to the Village Apothecary for fountain drinks. It saddens me to see it so empty now, not only for my kids, but for all area kids. They don’t get to feel that same sense of “community” or “belonging” that was around when I was younger. I’ve been talking with my family about opening a store for several years. Since ALCO closed there hasn’t been anything local to buy clothing items. I finally decided to take the leap this year which is how the Dandelion Boutique came to
be,” stated Hasch.
Suzanna and her husband James have been married about a year. They have three children; James Jr., Ashlyn and Liam, two dogs and numerous cats. Her Grandfather Leo McGrath was also a Paulding County Commissioner and a local farmer. The family still farms the property today. The store will be open Monday through Friday 8am-8pm and Saturday 10am-2pm to try and provide open hours for customers regardless of what shift you work. The Dandelion Boutique hopes to be an exciting destination for any customer from anywhere in Paulding County and beyond.
