Your Shop In Our Space
We had a great run with our first tenants, the online store, Hickoree’s Hard Goods. Their shop was featured in the New York Times, and things haven’t been quite the same since! As the Internet continues to change the retail landscape, temporary rental space allows for more flexibility than traditional retail lease arrangements. Explains Hickoree’s co-owner Emil Corsillo, “This was a great opportunity for us because as an online shop, we wanted a chance to meet our customers face-to-face, build brand awareness, and experiment with a brick-and-mortar presence. The temporary arrangement lets us test the waters, plus the expertise of the creative team was a big help for first time shop owners.” We’d like to recreate their success for other emerging business by inviting a group of distinctive vendors to share our space for a month. Email us if you’re interested and we’ll let you know more about what we’re thinking…
Hickoree’s Hard Goods
December 10, 2009 - January 31, 2010
“Hard goods” are defined as products that are not consumed or destroyed in use and can be used for a long period of time. Hickoree’s Hard Goods is a 6-month-old online store that features a one-of-a-kind assortment of such products.
The distinctive shop is a world of well-designed objects with a focus on American-made, timeless, and utilitarian pieces and a seamless blend of old and new.
Until now Hickoree’s Hard Goods has existed only in cyberspace. Their residency at Metropolitan Green is the first real-life manifestation of a new shop that feels like it could have existed as a physical place for years.
