Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) August 16, 2013
Annie’s Blue Ribbon General Store, a modern general store for a well-lived life, has relocated to Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood, bringing its assortment of clever, well-priced merchandise to the Slope’s bustling Fifth Avenue. Much like the original Boerum Hill store, the new location will stay true to founder Annie Cantrell’s bright, colorful aesthetic and love of all things fun and functional, but with more space and a larger selection of gifts to delight friends and family of all ages. Many items come with Annie’s signature personal touch and her “Best in Show” stamp of approval.
“Our Boerum Hill family has supported us wholeheartedly since we opened almost six years ago, and helped make my dream of opening a modern general store a reality. When the opportunity to move into a larger space presented itself, we had to take it,” said Annie. “We are so thrilled to be in Park Slope and meet a new set of general store fans, and hope our beloved family will follow us to our new location!”
