Francisco Silva's smile was beaming Thursday afternoon as he talked about his new business location on North Potomac Street in downtown Hagerstown. “I wanted to come downtown; more busy, more traffic,” said Silva, owner of Kerry's Hair and Day Spa at 35 N. Potomac St. “That way I can build my salon and also my stylists.” Attended by numerous city officials and a representative from U.S. Congressman John Delaney's office, a grand opening and ribbon-cutting event was held to officially welcome the City Center business, which was transplanted from Silva's former location on East Franklin Street.
