“They say time flies when you are having fun. It really does! The support and friendships that we have gained [during]these past three years has been amazing and we can’t wait to see where the future takes us,” was posted on the store’s Facebook page. To mark the anniversary, the store will host events, food, demos and special offers, according to its social media post.
Using her buying background, Billadeau set out to ensure that the products in her store felt handpicked for each and every customer, not just something that they could pick up at any retail outlet or online. And she set out on creating the destination to match.
“I knew I wanted the store to have a warm feeling. I used ideas from Pinterest and repurposed furniture for fixtures. For example, our knife cabinet is an old gun case and the table my mom used to use as a child has some spices on it. The neat thing is that I have an old picture of her sitting next to it that hangs on the wall. It is a great way to start a conversation with customers,” said Billadeau. “We want our customers to feel comfortable and relaxed, like they are walking into their own home or into their own kitchen.” Now into its third year in business, the store has grown into something special for its customers and the gourmet industry alike.
