A Roanoke business woman's gun and where she keeps it has helped her launch another, new business.
Eliane Coleman Niemann has owned The Health Shelf, a full service herbal wellness center, for 18 years. She got quite a scare one day in 2009 and thought she was going to be robbed. Nothing happened, but an idea was born. It's called the Apron Gun Holster.
"I didn't want my customers to come into a health store and be talking to me about their health, and I'm doing reflexology on their feet and then seeing a pistol on my side," said Niemann.
After no luck searching for something suitable, Niemann bought material and had this apron made. She has her concealed carry permit and keeps a gun on her for protection. She encourages other small business owners and workers to do the same.
