Construction Hurting Businesses in Lehighton
LEHIGHTON, Pa. -- Business was good when Jenny's Sweets and More opened on First Street in Lehighton back in the winter, but now, the store is lacking customers. Owner Jennifer Solt-Cerato says the long-term construction project on Route 209 is a big reason why. "The construction hasn't been very friendly to us. I think it's because people are routed away from our town. If you follow your GPS and directional signage, you're going to go completely away from our town," said Solt-Cerato.
