Sara Kim, owner of Lollie and Co., has a passion for her business and knew she wanted to expand from her clothing store to give North East a fresh, new home goods store named Nest.
“We had our grand opening on May 20, and we have received such a warm welcome from the community,” Kim said. “After opening Lollie, I have witnessed North East go through a resurgence, with new shops, renovations and overall new life going into the downtown district, and I wanted to provide something the town has yet to have, a home goods store with new products from name brands universally known throughout the country.”
Nest offers a variety of items including home décor, gift items, smaller pieces of furniture and the eclectic knick-knack or two. The pieces available in the store suit most homes featuring a variety of styles while continuously updating and revolving the inventory.
“I want anyone to walk in and feel the love Nest has to offer,” Kim said. “My main goal was to keep comfort as a priority while being malleable to the needs of the customers and of course keeping the trends in mind.”
Nest is suitable for everyone, from those thinking of redecorating, to vacationers looking for something special to take home.
Nest is also expecting to expand its products to feature a baby line including a selection of clothes and decorations.
Nest is where Serendipity Consignment Boutique used to be located, at 3 W. Main St. in North East.
“Serendipity was a wonderful store and once I heard the owner was retiring, I knew I had to jump on the location,” Kim said. “It has the perfect set-up for Nest and we completely remodeled the store to reflect our unique style while keeping it bright and cozy.”
Lollie and Nest have updated its hours to be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday.
All reward points accumulated from Lollie or Nest are interchangeable between both stores.
“I am so thankful to be part of such a vibrant community,” Kim said. “Nest has already been so busy and I can’t wait to see what summer brings. I hope everyone that walks in can see how much my staff and I care about the products and our customers.”
