New Location for City Sprouts
After five years at its last location, local children's store City Sprouts has moved from the Delmar Loop to the Colonial Marketplace.
"I love how bright and airy it is—we have some wonderful skylights, so it's very open," says owner Molly Curlee of the new location. "We're able to mechanize our clothing better…because we have the wall space to do it."
City Sprouts no longer will carry strollers or car seats, but Curlee says the shop will stock more clothing, including attire for pre- and early-teens by fall 2014. In this new store, customers should expect "more brands made in the United States, and hard-to-find clothing brands that are only available in a few select boutiques in the U.S."
City Sprouts currently is celebrating its ninth birthday, with the 'City Sprouts Birthday Celebration' sale happening on May 2.
YLANG YLANG Moving Soon
Also coming to the Colonial Marketplace is jewelry store YLANG YLANG, which will be relocating from Plaza Frontenac. This fine designer jewelry store will reside in the freestanding building of the Marketplace, with a private, soft-launch for a clients, followed by a grand opening.
"It feels like a house," says owner Julie Ettinger. "It's really going to be super-cute; we'll have our patio with wrought iron gates and French doors." Some changes to the store include additional product and price points; more exclusive bridal pieces; a 'men's room' hang-out space with coffee bar, seating and television; and a private meeting room.
YLANG YLANG plans to open its new location in summer 2014.
