home sweet kansas city
posted: November 16, 2012
Kansas City aka ‘The City of Fountains’ is one of the major city centers in the state of Missouri and, while it does have an impressive collection of fountains (one that rivals Rome for the world record), it’s got a lot more to offer than its nickname suggests.
We’re excited to be opening our store doors in this community and can’t wait to get a piece of their good old fashioned front porch culture.
home sweet home
The front porch has been a good friend of mine since the day I moved to Kansas City. I enjoyed my first meal as a resident of the Brookeside neighborhood on my front porch meeting neighbors, watching cyclists, runners and dog walkers pass my home while waving hello. I instantly felt connected to my community; it instantly felt like home.
come and knock on our door
It was a no brainer to infuse this front porch culture into our new store design in one of Kansas City’s most well known neighborhoods, the Country Club Plaza. The store has a permanent art piece that lives near the front of the store and highlights our four yoga ambassadors standing in Tadasana on one of KC’s classic front porches. Our ambassadors, Sharon Prothe, Abbi Miller, Jen Denslow and Eric Kipp each bring a piece of their personality and practice to the artwork.
We are so excited to share this piece with our community at the grand opening of the Country Club Plaza store on Friday, November 16th!
