For anyone that has walked down the Southport Corridor, you’ve seen the boutique Cerat. Wedged in between Crosby’s Kitchen, Suvarna Chiropractic, Free People, and Mystic Celt, the store closed down earlier this year leaving an empty store front and everyone wondering what will come next. In merely a couple weeks, the store was transformed into the new shop U.S. Apothecary.
The store, owned by the brand K. Hall Studio, Inc., features home goods and personal care items along with a small selection of clothing and gifts. This is the brand’s first time branching out from St. Louis, Missouri, where its flagship store and other location is. The new store has been given quite the makeover, featuring exposed brick and specially made sections for candles, lotions, soaps, perfumes, and other items. Like the other two locations, U.S. Apothecary is the only place where you are able to find everything. Although K. Hall Studio does wholesale through boutiques across America, including Anthropologie, this will be the only location in the area that will feature all four of the lines that the brand has to offer.
Each product feature simple and straight forward packaging with some even including letter press hangtags. All the fragranced goods are made by K. Hall Studio, with two lines even offering cleaning products (yes – that means you can have body cream that smells the same as your cleaning spray). Right now K. Hall Studio is testing the location in Chicago, featuring it as a pop-up shop through the holidays and continuing on if successful.
U.S. Apothecary opened quietly October 6th at its location on 3451 North Southport Avenue. To find out more you can visit the store or visit the collection online at khalldesigns.com.
