The Spirit Goat, a specialty soap and lotion store, has expanded after the tenant renting the back half on the building moved out on Monday. The store is now twice the size and the storefront has been increased by 75 square feet.
“The most important part of this expansion is what we gained in storefront,” said Becky Yeager, the owner of the store. “We really needed that otherwise we would’ve had to move.”
Yeager said the previous space was not enough for her expanding business.
“On busier days, we have had customers come in and tell us they felt there wasn’t enough room for them to walk around and then they leave.” said Deanna Outsen, an employee at the store. “Our customers are our number one priority so it feel good to give back to them after all the support they have given us.”
The staff is planning to be finished renovating by Tuesday. For more information on The Spirit Goat visit http://www.spiritgoat.com.
