Gone like the wind

September 21st, 2010
by Allison Kaplan

StormSister Spatique is packing up its moisturizers and closing its St. Paul boutique at the end of October. After four years of trying to make it work in her west side neighborhood, Becky Sturm is tired. She held on through the worst of the recession, but says she’s found little support from community banks and business organizations. It’s yet another reminder that we have to support the shops that make our city cool and unique if we want them to be around. StormSister Spatique will live on online, which is where it started and has always been the bigger business. And stay tuned: Sturm is developing a beauty product of her own. With her industry smarts and passion for all things pretty, you know it’s going to be good.

    As a fellow retailer (and close friend), I have great respect and admiration for Becky and StormSister Spatique.
    No doubt her renewed focus on product development will be a huge hit!
