Penzey’s Spices (Website) has opened a new shop at 1809 S. Orange Avenue [GMap] in the SoDo District, kitty-corner from the Pulse Interim Memorial.

The Wisconsin-based retailer is the largest independent spice retailer in the United States and is known for having outspoken political opinions. In 2022, the retailer hosted a “Republicans Are Racists Weekend” for Martin Luther King Day, with a discount on Mexican, Chinese, and Indian spices, and proceeds going to racial justice organizations. You can read the company’s treatise on Republicans HERE on the Penzey’s website.

Penzey’s Spices will be hosting a grand opening celebration in the coming months but is currently open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sunday.
