From NoLita to the Bay Area, retail collectives are popping up everywhere. This trend, where multiple related businesses share a space in order to reduce their costs, while also creating a unique and meaningful experience for the customer, is retail’s take on the cooperative economy.
And now it will be happening on Cape Cod very soon when LoveLiveLocal, along with Shift Eco Boutique, and Devinto move into 539 South Street, Hyannis which currently houses The Little Beach Gallery and The Local Juice to create a more collaborative and community oriented space run by fierce female business owners.
In addition to moving our headquarters to 539 South, we will also have a highly curated selection of products from makers that you have come to know and love from our LoveLocal Fests in our LoveLiveLocal showroom, including art from The Little Beach Gallery. Aiste Zitnikaite will be there envisioning, patterning, cutting and sewing her fashion lines for Devinto, and Shift will continue selling eco and ethical clothing, baby goods and home goods. And, customers will be able to fuel up The Local Juice with their healthy and nutritious food, juice and smoothie options.
The goal is to create a truly local experience where someone can come for local art, locally made products, shopping local, eating local food, and mingling with the local community. This space will truly embody the spirit of LoveLiveLocal, and we want it to be a dynamic and welcoming space that shoppers and sippers will want to come back again and again.
