Millennial entrepreneurs are finding ways to cut costs and invigorate their businesses by co-sharing.

Since April, Kristy Scott and her husband Abdiel Gonzalez have operated their clothing store 5th and Hall in the same downtown Lakeland storefront as the blow dry bar and barber shop Reborn.

“We kind of wanted to move into a bigger space but we knew we alone couldn’t fill it and the affordability would be tough for us,” Gonzalez said. “When this space became available we thought this might be the perfect opportunity to try out this co-shared idea that we’ve seen evolving over the years.”

“Downtown Lakeland is a prime location, said Jason Oliveras, the owner of Reborn. “It’s been great for the business. Definitely growth in it. Definitely see a change.”
