Business has been picking up in the last several days, DeWitt said, with a lot of repeat customers. Talmage said a recent day had a group of Weatherford College students in the study area, taking advantage of the free wi-fi while another group of students from the Ninth Grade Center across the street were sitting and socializing in another area.
