Home Heard on the Street HEARD ON THE STREET: 8.2.18



Salaam Moves, Rebel Heart to Open, Vacant Storefront Filled

The fashion boutique, Salaam, vacated one store front on State Street and moved a few doors down into the space which housed Vermont Trading Company for 25 years. Salaam is fully open for business at the new location and will hold a grand opening on August 4. The old location at 40 State Street will become Rebel Heart, a men’s and women’s clothing store with houseware and more. Owner Jenn Sebold has worked for Vermont Trading Company, Shoe Horn, and The Bridge. She plans to open in September after renovations. This shuffling of the deck means another vacant storefront in the downtown will be filled and vibrant again.


Aromed Opens new branch at the Berlin Mall

AroMed Aromatherapy and CBD Shop is opening in a new location at the Berlin Mall, next to Planet Fitness, scheduled to open mid/late August, after owner Lauren Andrews signed a six-month lease. The space is a bit bigger than the Montpelier store, and Andrews is in the process of hiring staff. She plans to host workshops, in addition offering her organic CBD and essential oil remedies. A grand opening party will be happening, but no date has been set yet.
