There’s a new store opening along the North Monroe business corridor at 2209 N Monroe (where the dojo used to be). It’s called The Lilac Shop and it’s based on an interesting concept: pop-up retail, which is a relatively recent commercial trend that has to do with short-term storefronts.
Here’s what owner Alyssa Agee says about it:
The Lilac Shop is a POP-UP consignment shop specializing in men’s and women’s clothing, shoes, accessories and home decor items. We’re so excited to be a part of the North Monroe business community.
We’ll be opening our doors on Thursday, May 5 with a Grand Opening Party from 5–7pm. Please join us for desert, goodies, and a raffle!
The shop will feature gently used clothing but also housewares and home decor and furniture. Think boutique-chic meets thrift store pricing. We are also so proud to feature local artisans and their one-of-a-kind wares.
The shop will open May 5 and run only for the month of May. Opening days are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 12–6pm. Should the response be positive, Alyssa says she might be open to making the space an extended or even permanent home for The Lilac Shop.
