At Mongoose Junction, the space formerly occupied by the Canvas Factory will soon be the home of a operated by, and for the benefit of, the Friends of the Virgin Islands National Park.
Items for sale will include T-shirts, educational toys and materials as well as home decorations. "Many of our carefully chosen products will be made from recycled materials and renewable resources, and others will support the objective of fair trade amongst nations," the Friends announced. The store will also be a resource for information about Friends activities and seminars.
A grand opening party is planned for December but hopes are to have the store open by the middle of November.
