Imagine you had the tools and resources at your disposal - what business would you like to open in Newport? What would work in the community?
Here were some ideas from the Portsmouth Patch Facebook page.
Julie Barrett: yarn store but it'd not be profitable for a business. rents are way too high
Ellen Davis: I used to want a laundromat there, but then I moved. :D
Glenna Andrade: A good ice cream spot, especially up north
Rob Deacon: bass pro shop
Elizabeth Hanes: A cupcake shop
