THE PARK MOTOR INN, which has been in operation for 30 years, was recently purchased by local Entrepreneur Jay Heald and his wife Shalonie Persaud-Heald. It is one of the few lodging choices in Elizabethtown within walking distance of the Essex County government centers, the courts, the regional hospital, the school and the downtown retail area. Mr. Heald was referred to the SBDC by Champlain National Bank for assistance in developing a business plan and financials in order to secure a commercial loan. Mr. Heald and Advisor Smith worked together and delivered the required documents to the bank in record time.
