pur alternatives not opening in Hydrostone after all

Natural personal product store "in hibernation"

Posted By on Wed, Jun 22, 2011 at 4:00 AM

Recently in our Shoptalk: Go Local on the Hydrostone Market, we announced that natural personal product store pur alternatives, formerly in the Barrington Place Shops and also online, was going to reopen a storefront on Kaye Street, in the new building directly across from the Hydrostone. It has now been announced that the store will not be opening, according to pur alternatives co-owner Christopher Galbraith, in a post on his blog.

"It was with equal amounts sadness and embarrassment that we have announced that our new store in the Hydrostone is now not opening at all," he writes. "Indeed we were very excited and it undoubtedly would have been great but apparently it just wasn’t meant to be."
