Downtown Newnan Welcomes New Retailers and Two Dessert Shops

Rock Salt Ice Cream Parlor and The Hug Box 

As you strolled through downtown Newnan during the Spring Art Walk you may have noticed several business openings. In the south, spring welcomes warmer weather, plentiful blooms, along with smiling faces that invite the ideal opportunity for new business.

Eco-friendly USA shop, The Hug Box opened a brick and mortar shop last summer at 13 West Washington Street which features local artisans. Shop owner Vicki Sanders tells us, “We allow customers to send and fill a hug box which sends a hug when you can’t be there, you support the earth along with bringing happiness.”

A new business, Rock Salt Ice Cream Parlor, will soon open in the former space of Cookie Barr. Construction is currently under way inside the business at 8 East Washington Street.

Ellie Mack Boutique and Newnan Mercantile 

Further down, past where the air is filled with fresh smells of toffee and candies, at 15 North Court Square, Ellie Mack Boutique opened in the former space of Newnan Mercantile.

Newnan Mercantile found its new home at 11 Greenville Street, bringing a bright, welcoming store that features home decor and furniture. Click here to read more about Newnan Mercantile.

Southern Heritage Co. and Frio’s 

Local business Southern Heritage Co. from Senioa, Georgia, opened its new location next to Newnan Mercantile in the beginning of 2019 and celebrated its grand opening during Art Walk.

Also, coming soon is a new popsicle shop, Frio’s Gourmet Pops, in the former building of The Poppyseed, which recently closed. Frio’s has been popping up all around Newnan with samples. Its nearest location can be found at 120 Bull Street in LaGrange, Georgia.

Leaf and Bean and Finley’s Boutique 

Newnan’s Leaf & Bean recently added new benches and front area to the coffee shop. Manager Tiffany tells us, “We needed more space for our awesome customers.” Just next door Ace Beer Growlers has added fresh butchered meats, their own line called, “COW EATA Meat Company.”

Take a brisk walk down Jefferson Street and visit Finley’s Boutique. The shop recently opened in the former space of Mayfair Children’s Shop at 7 Jefferson Street.
