Sewickley helped celebrate the grand openings of two new businesses Thursday and Friday with ribbon cutting ceremonies.
On Thursday, Tournesol at 425 Walnut St., was officially welcomed to the Village of Sewickley with a grand-opening ribbon cutting outside the store.
Sewickley Mayor Brian Jeffe also delivered Tournesol owner Barbara Reilly with a proclamation.
On Friday, the mayor stopped by Fancy’s Folly to celebrate the grand opening of the upscale boutique and "pop up store" that has returned to the Sewickley Village at 427 Broad St., the Elan Gallery building. Fancy’s Folly, founded in 2001, carries classic gifts, accessories and clothing for women, men and the home.
In addition to a ribbon cutting, the mayor also delivered owner Nancy Follett a proclamation declaring May 11 as Nancy Follett Day.
Jeffe thanked both of the business owners for investing in Sewickley.
Follett, owner of Fancy’s Folly, said the store will emphasize charitable giving throughout June by committing 10 percent of all sales more than $100.
The “Shop for a Cause” event will allow customers to choose from three locally-based charities to donate the proceeds: Botany in Action at Phipps Conservatory, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, or The Village Theater Company.
Fancy's Folly store hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Tournesol's three-day grand opening celebration continues through today, or shop online at www.tournesolgifts.com
