It got a favorable mention in a New York Times article. On the other hand, the area is zoned for amusement parks, not retail, and local bloggers and opinionators are looking down on a market that sells toothpaste and laundry soap where once-beloved roller coasters and amusement park rides stood....

Suddenly a light bulb went off in my head,” he recalls. Bulzis quickly sketched out an idea for a case to safely secure multiple pairs of sunglasses, and ShadeCase was born. The...
