Franklin's business landscape is undergoing some big changes, a sign that maybe better times are ahead for the local economy.
Franklin’s Main Street is bustling, with the biggest problem these days being findind a parking space on either end of the street. New shops have found their homes along Main Street, and after hours, the sidewalks are actually lined with visitors, something Franklin’s main street has long since struggled to do consistently.
But main street isn’t the only thing changing. From both ends of Franklin, older buildings such as the Dan’s Auto building or Ace Hardware have gotten a facelift, with new store fronts and more shopper friendly parking lots.
