March 2018 Business of the Month:

Dressing Dreams

The Hart County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that the March 2018 Business of the Month is Dressing Dreams.  This family owned business was started by Tonya and Jeff Purcell on Depot Street in Hartwell back in 2002.  They recently moved to their beautiful 10,000 square foot store located on the square in downtown Hartwell in the fall of 2017 after taking over an old sewing plant and turning it into a stunning bridal and prom destination shop that would rival any store in New York or Atlanta.   They carry a wide array of designer wedding gowns and formal dresses and accessories as well as tuxedo rentals.  Their team is ready to greet shoppers and help them find just the right dress for any occasion.  Their eye catching window displays feature just a taste of the selection of the many designs they carry that bring customers come from all over the southeast to find that one of a kind gown.  We salute Dressing Dreams for their investment and commitment to our community and are proud to name them the Chamber Business of the Month.
