Keeping Up with Medina Matters

by Bev Barr

Temporary tweak in business hours support recovery
The good people at The Little Cottage Quilt Shop — Donette and Christer Backlund — thank their customers and friends for their patience and understanding as they make necessary adjustments to the store’s hours of operation while Donette nurses Christer back to full recovery from surgery.
Starting Aug. 28, the shop will be closed on Mondays (as well as Sundays). Also, the shop will close at 4 pm everyday. The Backlunds will reassess operating hours in October.
