Jenn Skarda, 34, didn’t let the floods deter her from opening a women’s fashion boutique along Main Street in Ellicott City.
“After the flood occurred, I had the ability to open a store and help revive the town,” says the Ellicott City resident, who previously was a homemaker. “It’s something I love. And there weren’t a lot of stores opened. It takes one person to follow through and more stores would open.”
