Megan Sabers decided it was time to make a move. Sabers opened Tickled Pink in November 2011, and Bliss Bridal soon after in September 2012. After nearly five years in their 304 N. Main St. location, Sabers will move Tickled Pink and Bliss Bridal. "It was just timing," she said. "We only had one store going, so if we were going to make a move, now was our time to do it." Sabers' Main Street businesses, Tickled Pink and Bliss Bridal, both had to close temporarily after a November fire at 304 N. Main St. caused extensive damage.
