Our round-up of the latest Natick, Mass., business news:
Natick.Business website launches
A new website called Natick.Business has launched through a joint effort by Natick merchants through the Natick Center Cultural District and Natick Center Associates, and Natick’s Community & Economic Development Department.
The site, which is still being fleshed out, features information from Natick and the Commonwealth that’s helpful to businesses looking to reopen safely, and provides resources, such as access to free signage covered by the town. Volunteers in specific industry sectors will help businesses get up to speed on best practices for reopening, too.
Five Crows reopening
Five Crows, the gallery and handcrafted gifts shop at 41 Main St., in Natick Center, will be back in action as of this Thursday, June 18. Just in time for this weekend’s Father’s Day.
You’ll need to wear a mask (spares available) and must use hand sanitizer upon entering. Gloves will be available, too. The store will be limited to 7 customers at a time, contact-free transactions will be offered, as will gift wrap. No cash transactions.
Uni-T making move from mall to Natick Center
Uni-T, which describes itself as a combined art gallery, T-shirt and gift shop, has closed the Natick shop it started in 2012 and is planning to open soon on Court Street in Natick Center. Multitalented owner Eujin Kim Neilan features her own illustrated children’s books, hand-printed T-shirts and other creations, plus those of other local artists. Dance, music and book readings are among the sorts of events Uni-T has held in the past.
The business has humble roots, with Eujin starting in a home studio, branching out to farmers’ markets, and going from there. Sounds like a perfect fit for Natick’s artsy center.
