EDIT: We received the following note from Retain Reinvention concerning their involvement with the project:
“We are flattered and appreciative that you mentioned Retail Reinvention in your recent post about Re:Innovation; however, we are not involved in any way with Re:Innovation. We assisted in the redesign of the overall Artegon Marketplace. But again, we have no partnership with Re:Innovation.”
The new shop, named The District (Facebook), will soon house merchandise and goods from a variety of local businesses, but will be spearheaded by the people behind Re:Innovation (Facebook), a popular reclaimed furniture maker. Other businesses that will be selling their wares on commission include a vintage clothing company, local bath product maker, vegan baked goods, a local coffee vendor, air plants and orchids, and more. District co-owner, Jamey Harper, let us know that the businesses are still signing their agreements and that they would release their names once all the i’s have been dotted.
A team from Retail Reinvention (Website), a visual merchandising and retail design company in New York, will be helping with the overall form and function of the shop. Opening is tentatively scheduled between the last weekend of June and the second weekend of July.
