Downtown Cincinnati Inc., in partnership with the City of Cincinnati Department of Community and Economic Development, is happy to announce the merchants for the Summer Cincy Pop Shops at 617 Vine Street, open May 30 to July 31.

They are:

  • GO(O)D Company -  Mortar grad Donny Harris's apparel brand has a mission to clothe every man, woman and child in stylish garments that promote the importance of keeping good company. 
  • Jamerisol - Created by Mortar alumna Dana Higgins, Jamerisol provides fresh, natural juices and vegan snacks for healthy eaters on the go, all inspired by Jamaican cuisine and family traditions. Snacks include Caribbean Non-Meat Pies and Spring Salad Mix with Mango/Habanero Vinaigrette or Red Raspberry Vinaigrette. 
  • Native Brand - Founder Jay Banks began this T-shirt endeavor in 2014, growing the brand organically during that time, with each T-shirt and hat conceptualized, designed, and produced by him. 
  • Slim Furniture - This West Chester-based company offers portable, high quality, modular furniture for both indoor and outdoor use that can be constructed and deconstructed easily without the use of tools.

Cincy Pop Shop is an opportunity for these owners to create, expand, and nurture their small business with relatively low risk in an affordable space. The stores are open Monday - Friday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and closed on Sunday. 

To kick off the venture, the public is invited to join the vendors, Downtown Cincinnati Inc., and the City of Cincinnati for the grand opening celebration on Friday, June 2 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the 617 Vine Street shops on the ground level of the Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites building.
