GLASSELL PARK — After operating online for the past year, The MiA Project, which showcases U.S. designers and manufacturers, has opened its first store on the west end of York Boulevard. Located in the former home of Gimme Gimme Records, The MiA (Made in America) Project shop will feature everything from homewares and art to lingerie and apothecary.
In addition to year-around merchandise, the line up of designers will evolve during the year, and owner Micha Thomas plans to host several special events, including trunk shows and art exhibits. Thomas said she selected York Boulevard for her company’s first store because of the sense of community.
“On my first day looking for available commercial spaces in the area I came across the Gimme Gimme Records spot, and the rest happened quickly,” said Thomas, who plans to open more stores.
