Shop Talk: THREAD Opens New Short North Location
Local boutique THREAD opened their second location earlier this month. The new shop is located at 930 N. High St., inside The Brunner Building in the historic Short North Arts District. THREAD is just one retailer inside of a mixed-use building that will eventually house a restaurant and apartments.
Owner Miranda Boyle opened her first THREAD store in 2012 after taking a hiatus from the retail fashion world to spend time with her family. Along with her sister, Boyle opened THREAD in Grandview. Two years later, Boyle bought out her sister and moved the business to its current home at 1285 Grandview Ave.
Boyle, who has a background in retail fashion, decided the quickly growing Short North was the best place to expand THREAD. The Short North is rapidly becoming a go-to destination for living, working, shopping, and dining, and Boyle is excited to bring her fashion and lifestyle selections to the area and become a part of that community.
THREAD carries many brands and lines in women’s apparel and accessories, both locally and internationally. Two of the jewelry lines THREAD offers are Pluma, a local brand from Upper Arlington, and Ashely Pittman, a designer working with artists and supplies from Kenya. 1820 Candles is another local brand THREAD carries. Premium jeans from L’Agence and contemporary New York brand Snider are also available at THREAD, along with many other lines consisting of tops, bottoms, dresses, and shoes. Additionally, THREAD carries many lifestyle pieces, such as books, plates, and other small home goods and accessories.
