A St. John’s-based online clothing company is about to open a bricks and mortar store in its hometown of Grand Falls-Windsor.
The Shop, SALT, has been selling products online since the spring of 2017. The store will open its first ever retail location this coming Saturday on Hardy Avenue in Grand Falls-Windsor.
Co-directors of The Shop, SALT Emily Evans and Lauren Saunders say for them, opening the store is a dream come true.
The two, who have been friends since their days growing up in Grand Falls-Windsor, set up an online shop for their unisex clothing and outerwear after moving to St. John’s to go to school.
Lauren says the time was right to open their first store. She says it was always in the back of their minds, and they received so much support from the Grand Falls-Windsor area they decided it was time to go back there with their first store.
