“As a Dayton native, I feel connected to the city and strongly believe in downtown’s revitalization efforts,” said owner Colin Sand.

The store is part of the Downtown Dayton Partnership’s Pop-Up Project, which provides opportunities for business owners who are looking for shorter leases to get their stores opened.
