ROCKFORD, Mich.-- For the past 21 years, Rockford resident Melanie Ragsdale has honed her graphic design artistry while serving as the creative genius behind the advertising design and layout of the Rockford Squire Newspaper.
With the nation's economy now in full recovery mode, Ragsdale feels the time is right to pursue a life-long dream of opening a storefront business of her own.
Ragsdale Design Center will officially open its doors for business in the heart of downtown Rockford's business district on Monday, November 4, 2013. The Design Center's co-owners, Will and Melanie, were both raised in Rockford. The couple met after graduating from Rockford High School, fell in love, and subsequently married. Now Rockford homeowners, they are the proud parents of a three-year-old daughter, Sophia Ruby. Will is currently employed in management with Michigan's Davis Oil.
