Owner -- Donna Sherman

After discovering a mutual love of jigsaw puzzles, Donna and a friend opened Puzzle Palooza Etc., Inc in February 2013 in Historic Occoquan. Over the next few years the business grew and required more space prompting 2 moves within the town, but always on Mill Street. On October 1, 2019 Donna took over as full owner. She is excited to be able to continue to share her love of puzzles, brain teasers and games with her customers.
