NORTH MANCHESTER - Last summer, Bill Leonhard and his wife Denise ordered a line of spring clothing for their store, Cottage Creations, not knowing if they would have space to sell it.

After discussions with Matt Mize, owner of the building Cottage Creations is located in, the Leonhards were able to expand their business and open a boutique.

“The major part of the expansion is the boutique. My wife and I talked about it last summer and ordered the spring clothes, and then I went to Matt [Mize] and told him I was expanding my inventory and was interested in renting more space if he ever moved,” Leonhard said.
