The importance of supporting local small business brought together local and state leaders to highlight the success that State and County funding has had in the relocation of Rosta’s, a women’s clothing store that has been in downtown Silver Spring for 25 years.
A combination of State and County funding leveraged private investment nearly five times and resulted in a newly renovated building that is creating jobs and preserving a local small business.
Cutting a tape measure to mark the renovation of the store’s new location at 8618 Fenton Street were (from left): Director of Montgomery County's Dept. of Housing and Community Affairs Rick Nelson; County Executive Ike Leggett; Erma and Ali Rostai; Maryland Lt. Governor Anthony Brown; Maryland Dept. of Housing and Community Development Secretary Raymond Skinner; and District 20 Delegate Heather Mizeur. Rosta’s new store is scheduled to open later this month. Read more.
