Cause for Paws, which donates proceeds to local spay and neuter programs takes residence, as well as other interesting vendors that qualify as must see. Really, you need to take a spin inside to see what you are missing.
Corella set the Emporium up with an open concept where local vendor goods are blended throughout to give the store an easy flow. The bottom line for Corella is how much the new Emporium can give back to the community. “It is a really unique business model,” Corella said, “and we are targeting the locals. We want them to have a place to shop downtown. It is exciting. A woman today was finding treasures she liked, and she bought a lot. I know we will get the tourists, but I want to give back to the community, and make it a place the community enjoys coming in.” Visit Gatherings Emporium at 1335 Park Street, or call 369-2599 or email us at email@example.com
