In the past two months two women have opened two businesses side by side in Hancock.
Friends Denise Clark and Dory Pelayl, both of Everett, Pa., own D & D's Place used clothing consignment shop at 136 W. Main St. and Hancock Family Cleaners next door. Clark said the two have been friends for seven years.
The clothing shop, which sells used clothing for children and adults, opened June 1. The dry-cleaning shop opened on May 1.
Clark makes the 30-minute drive from Everett to the Hancock stores daily, while Pelayl runs the main dry-cleaning shop in Everett. Clothes brought in to Hancock Family Cleaners are taken to Everett for cleaning and then returned for pickup, Clark said.
