The Record Courier ran a great article about Ron Burbick last weekend, celebrating the amazing transformation he helped spark in downtown Kent with his Acorn Alley Projects, Phases I and II.
Ron has proven that if you build it, they will come. As fast he builds new buildings, he’s had waiting lists for businesses that want a chance to chase their dreams in them.
Ron builds’em, dreamy shop owners open’em, and now it’s up to all of us to shop’em.
So in case you hadn’t heard there’s a new shop in town — the Wild Earth Outfitters. It’s the first shop to open in Acorn Alley Phase II, and because there’s construction going on all around it, it would be easy to not even notice the neon Open sign in the window — but the products in that store are too good to just sit on the shelf, so get down to Erie Street and do your part to support a new locally owned store.
What products do they sell? With names like NorthFace, Mountain Hard Wear, Granite Gear, and Columbia they’ve got your outdoor gear covered. From hiking to camping and everything in between this is a store that can’t be missed.
Seriously, I could max out my credit card in this place.
