Sprinkle CPA firm has been named Greenfield Main Street’s Member of the Month for March.
It’s a busy time of year at the downtown Greenfield business, located on a prominent corner at 32 S. State St. A constant stream of clients have been making their way into the office, dropping off tax documents and preparing to close the books on 2017.
Owner Michele Sprinkle thrives during the fast-paced tax season, helping clients navigate through tax forms and guiding them through the annual ritual.
Her firm provides not only tax preparation services but payroll services, bookkeeping and new business consulting. She and her staff are also QuickBooks Pro Advisors and consultants.
Sprinkle opened her downtown Greenfield office in 2006, and opened a second office in New Palestine later that year.
The seasoned CPA loves the small-town feel found in downtown Greenfield. She first fell in love with the historic town while visiting family here at Christmastime years ago. “I remember the quaint downtown area vividly from my youth. Now I’m proud to be a business owner in that very same area that made such an impression on me as a kid,” she said.
Downtown Cuts was named Greenfield Main Street’s Member of the Month for February.
Owner Dana Cottey has seven years experience as a hairstylist, but she long dreamed of owning her own shop. In May 2016 she made the dream a reality by opening a salon in a building her husband’s family has owned for 40 years, at 118 S. Pennsylvania St., just south of Main Street.
The downtown Greenfield locale is ideal for Cottey, who has lived in Greenfield since 1996.
Her shop is known for its trademark mustache in the front window. While she provides haircuts and styling services for women and kids, Cottey focuses mostly on men’s hair and facial hair grooming. “I’ve been called a beard guru. Beards are my favorite thing to do,” she said.
“Most men don’t realize you need to take care of a beard of mustache, not just trim and go,” said the stylist, who offers a variety of styling and treatment options at her shop. In addition to beard and mustache trims, she offers scalp treatments and deep conditioning treatments for facial hair. She also sells a variety of grooming and conditioning products designed to keep beards, mustaches and goatees looking their best.
Cottey’s commitment to not just her customers, but her community, earned her the honor as Main Street’s Member of the Month. “Even before she first opened her doors, Dana was actively seeking out ways to support the downtown business community,” said Shelley Swift, Greenfield Main Street’s executive director. “She never hesitates to support an event, whether it’s donating a gift certificate, promoting our Shop Small promotion or serving as a judge at our Boos & Brews costume contest last year. She always goes the extra mile to make sure downtown Greenfield businesses get the attention they deserve.”
