Bricks Retail in downtown Longmont is exchanging storefronts with Visit Longmont later this month and is looking to add more small business owners or sellers to its newer and larger location.

“This is really a great opportunity for the residents of Longmont as we will have a bigger space where they can help themselves and our community by continuing to shop locally,” said Jennifer Ferguson, owner of Bricks Retail and Wonder Tours. She said the new space is just over double that of the previous location.

Bricks Retail, which started out as a pop-up store inside the Longmont Downtown Development Association office at 320 Main Street, is moving to the current Visit Longmont location, 512 Fourth Ave. Visit Longmont will share the office with LDDA from the weekend of August. 14.

“We hope to be completely relocated and settled by August 25 and will have a grand opening on August 27,” Ferguson said. “We are still working on the details of the grand opening, but we will remain COVID aware and it will be outside, in front of our new, larger store. “

Ferguson said she launched Bricks Retail and Wonder Tours to introduce residents to local vendors and small business owners, as well as to help neighbors discover new attractions and favorite places.

“What really excites me and the current vendors is that this is a permanent location, which means we can put up signage and really make it our own,” Ferguson said. “Additionally, we can add more vendors to our shared area and continue the mission of providing our friends and neighbors the opportunity to experience all that is local. “

“Bricks Retail is a collection of locally made products and products, ranging from melted candle waxes to personalized gifts, foods, products and services like photography that so enriches Longmont, and made by local residents,” Ferguson explained.

Once the new downtown storefront opens to the public, Ferguson said, she is looking for additional vendors to fill the space and the opportunity to expand both Bricks Retail and Wonder Tours by offering walking tours of the city.

“It’s my goal to foster local tourism,” Ferguson said. “I want people to find out more about the cool things available where they live.”
