In The News: Frisco Downtown Merchants Creating Support Network
Jenn Van Dahm and Tony Felker weighed in on the efforts of downtown Frisco merchants in the article by William Wadsack of Community Impact Newspaper.
Baer said the Frisco Chamber of Commerce has also been very supportive of the group and its efforts.
