FORT MYERS, Fla. - A Fort Myers woman wants to help you start your own business. The Franklin Shops on First Street in downtown Fort Myers is set to open in December.

It is one big store, and small businesses set up shop inside.

"Right now is a great time for entrepreneurs to start their own business and this allows individuals to keep their primary job and turn their hobby into a functioning business. It's great for small businesses because it allows them either to downsize, expand, or start their own business for a fraction of the cost."

If you are interested in opening a shop, contact Allison Campbell at www.thefranklinshops.com.
