This refreshing new fashion addition to the region is sure to be a student favorite, but after the visit we believe it will be one of ours as well.
The first thing that greets you in the store is an amazing piece of street art by Rockit, depicting a figure who embodies the store and its commitment to sustainable clothing.
She’s been named Joy, and how happy a store has such happy owners.
Laura and Ben Grosvenor are a dynamic husband-and-wife team that established the store last year in October, before (yet another) foreclosure.
“We wanted to bring something that wasn’t just different, but that the neighborhood badly needed,” said Ed, who admitted to being a sneaker freak.
“Sustainable clothing helps the planet in so many ways, and I want to be a great role model for my own children and the next generation. “
The collection of clothing, accessories and sneakers for men and women is extensive.
Each item is hand-selected for its quality, and the emphasis is clearly on sportswear – from t-shirts, sweaters to varsity jackets and a few very unique rare pieces, including Jordan t-shirts of one. impeccable quality.

“My attitude towards clothing in general and what I wear has changed so much since working here,” Laura said.
“It’s so exciting to choose everything, and it really made me develop my love of sportswear and incorporate it into my own wardrobe. “
The range of high-quality brands is a great asset to the city, both for sports fans after a vintage team item and for fashionistas who love a brand – we’ve seen some great pieces packed on the rails of Nike, Guess, Levis, Champion, Adidas and Dolce & Gabanna.
