The last couple of months have brought some new businesses to South End, bringing with them a little style and a little flavor. Two of these are Savory Spice Shop and The Benjamin Bear. Savory Spice Shop opened on Small Business Saturday but didn’t have their official Grand Opening until a couple weeks ago. I stopped in for the Grand Opening and never thought I would be so intrigued by spices. The spices come in bulk so everything gets measured and weighed. They’ve got just about anything you can think of and usually have something to sample.
A brand new clothing store, The Benjamin Bear, recently opened on the bottom floor below Pewter Rose. It’s a small (maybe 500SF) space but owner Patrick Hill has given it a very modern feel. Patrick designs some of the clothes and carries unique brands to the Charlotte market. Make certain to stop in, say hello, and try on something.
