Two new retailers have come to a shopping center on Wade Hampton Boulevard in Greenville.

Acorn & Arrow and UrbanDigs are opening at 213 and 215 Wade Hampton Blvd., respectively, in the Stone’s Point shopping center. Stone’s Point also houses B&C Cleaners, The Community Tap, Dapper Ink Custom Outfiiters, Even A Sparrow: A Lifestyle Boutique and Neue Southern Food Truck.

Ann Chandler, an Upstate native and the owner of the Stone’s Point shopping center, decided to open her own store in the center when a space became available in November.

Chandler opened Acorn & Arrow, which offers rugs, art, furniture, antiques and a variety of other items, such as ornate candlesticks and original oil. Chandler hopes to create a destination for those who want to add some “old soul” to their home, according to a news release.

Amy Walcher, a longtime Greenville resident, opened UrbanDigs. It offers home and garden décor, wall art, accent furniture, rugs, pillows, lighting, local and regional art, antiques and refurbished pieces.

Walcher, the UrbanDigs owner, was attracted to Stone’s Point because of the unique mix of small businesses and Chandler’s commitment to creating a vibrant shopping destination, according to a news release.

Acorn & Arrow will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. UrbanDigs will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m.

The city will host a ribbon cutting ceremony for both retailers Friday at 4:30 p.m. Both stores will host a Holiday Sip n’ Shop event until 8 p.m. The event is open to the public. Coffee and desserts will be served. The Neue Southern food truck will also be on site serving food from 5 to 8 p.m.
