The Family Shop is a new and exciting parenting retail store opening here in Erie, PA. Created by Jeff and Kristyn Chiaramonte, their mission is to provide the best quality family care products and services at fair pricing to support families of all income levels. Every customer matters to them. Such a perfect name for their shop as they truly are family focused and family supportive, a community effort that is rarely felt in any big box store today. They are trying to help the community not only by providing great products to families but also by supporting local “mommy makers/artisans” which will have Erie made products featured on their Vendor Wall.
The Family Shop will provide great new natural products focused on helping families. They will be offering a variety of baby carriers/wraps, nursing/maternity apparel, cloth diapers, bamboo feeding tools, educational toys, teething products and more. The shop has a Mommy Corner, designed with nursing moms in mind, it is a quiet corner where mammas can nurse if baby gets hungry during shopping or change their bums without being distracted from the business of the hustle and bustle. There is also an adorable kids spot that is a space designed specifically for little ones to play, with a huge open window where kids remain in sight from across the store; moms and dads can shop while their little one plays, and can keep a good eye on them at the same time.
The Family Shop will have their grand opening starting Tuesday April 26, 2016 10 am lasting all week, they will give away free reusable “The Family Shop” totes on each in store purchase, while supplies last. The shop’s regular hours of operation will be Tuesdays-Saturdays from 10 am – 6 pm. During the grand opening there will be large stamp pads available in an array of colors so the customers can use their hand prints to decorate the lower half of the store’s walls. I earnestly love this idea and cannot wait until my littles are old enough to return and can pick out their own hands on the shop walls. As the days lead up to the grand opening, stay tuned on Facebook where the shop has been featuring some fun reveals and keeping us updated with any news.
I am earnestly excited for this store to open, as an Erie resident and mama of two I can see the potential and need for this shop to be a great community support. Kristyn and Jeff hope to start hosting learning programs from the shop to allow moms and dads a safe place to spend time, grow and learn, and allow children to socialize as well. The shop is quaint, inviting and welcoming to all customers. Whether you are curious about baby wearing, cloth diapers, looking to simply connect, or thinking about going bit greener in your home, this is the shop you want to stop by!
