NASHVILLE, GA (WALB) –Three Nashville women put their talents together and created a shop inside a historic building.

This building on Davis Street was built as a gas station about 80 years ago.

It's been remodeled but retains its historic integrity.

Better hometown Director Dawn Morrision says that's becoming a trend in the town.

One of the entreprenuers says sharing expenses with her two friends allowed them to start their business.

"I think our business incubator did put the ideas into merchant's minds that they could pull their talents together and they could share rent expenses and labor costs," said Morrison.

"It's made a huge difference I'm all excited about the idea of retail again," said Kathy Perry of the Perfect Pear.

The perfect pear sells home furnishings, clothes, and gourmet food.

It opened last month.
