Why do you love Manayunk?
I have so many reasons why I love Manayunk. However, the first thing that comes to mind is my baby department which is expanding. Being able to build relationships with my customers and watch their children grow up over the years from newborns to toddlers is an amazing feeling. Also, the support and collaboration between the small businesses and the customers is so strong. People love knowing all the owners and being able to get anything they need up and down Main St.
Where are you from?
Blue Bell, PA - There aren't many small towns to walk around and shop in so being able to open a store in Manayunk is a great experience. Living there and working here I get the best of both worlds.
Why did you choose to open a store in MNYK?
I chose to open my store here because of how welcoming the other business owners were. From the first day my landlords introduced me to all the other shop owners and they were all so excited for me to be here. I couldn't find that vibe anywhere else!
How long have you been in business here?
Favorite house warming gift you would recommend?
I have an amazing set of Pineapple Brass cheese knives, and it is the number one selling item in the store. I think it goes great for house warming, host/hostess, or a nice congratulatory gift. I always recommend to anyone looking to give a great gift.
Can you explain some of the items Pineapple on Main sells?
House warming, host/hostess gifts, and baby/newborn essentials!
What makes Pineapple on Main unique?
I have a very close relationship with all my vendors, and I feel like that is why I am able to provide such great quality items. I also source a lot of my products locally which allows community members to be involved and engaged in my business.
Thanks so much for chatting today, Kathy. It was great meeting you!
