In April, Maplewood business Movies Unlimited succumbed to the competition and went out of business.
Ken Ploch, who was an accountant in Maplewood for 20 years at Kenneth Ploch Financial Services, took the opportunity to move his office across Manchester into the empty space at 7215 Manchester. He also bought everything between his new office and Maplewood Liquor. He's quite happy about his new tenants at Tiny Little Monster.
He said his son and daughter-in-law are now working for him, and he hopes to start working from 8-5 instead of 5-8.
Ploch’s new office is rough-looking now, but he said it will look pretty in two months. He hopes to stay in business in Maplewood another 20 years.
