I've used Savannah tailoring for many years, and she always does a wonderful job. I last took a formal dress to her in late July, and didn't know about the flood. If you are looking for anything from hemming or zipper replacements to wedding dress alterations, I highly recommend her and hope she can stay in business!

Three cheers for Savannah who always completes alterations of all complexities on time and with a smile. In the past month she did two quick jobs for me in her “under-construction” shop. Landlord, why don’t you finish the job and let Savannah reopen and do her work for our community? She has been a great tenant all these years and she needs her shop up and running at 100%. It’s the least you could do for her!

I'm happy for her but would like to see a profile of poor Annie, the cleaner / tailor who's now working out of the back of European Cobbler accessible via the door right next to the big dumpster because her landlord wouldn't cut her ANY break om her absurdly high rent during the pandemic.

She used to be on the corner of Cambridge right next to the exit from the parking garage.

How about profiling the effect that the city's greedy landlords have on small business?
