Another old established downtown store has changed hands. Mark and Dee Thompson acquired Island Gift Nook at 227 West Venice Ave., and they are only the fourth owners in the shop’s 54 years since opening in 1963.

 Originally from Dublin, Ohio, Dee Thompson moved 30 years ago to Dayton. With an interesting career in the insurance and banking industries, she then moved to Motophoto. During her 17 years of service, she worked as a payroll manager, then accounting and promotions manager.
