A Sense of Community
In the early 1900’s, shopping was a very different experience in Erie, PA than it is today. Various specialty shops dotted State and Peach Streets from the Bayfront to what was then called Federal Hill (near 26th and Peach Streets). Whether looking for a butcher, confectioner or shoe repairman, you could count on your local shop owner to provide quality products, service and a genuine interest in your personal well-being. These local merchants often lived above their shops and were neighbors contributing to the rich tapestry of our community.
In recent years, there’s been a resurgence in the small specialty shop, hallmarked by hand-selected goods and personal service. The old Federal Hill Neighborhood near W. 26th and Peach Streets is no exception! In recent months, we’ve seen some really exciting new businesses take up residence nearby. At Chicory Hill Herbs, we’ve always believed in the old-fashioned personal touch. We’re excited to see our neighborhood come alive with other shopkeepers who are of like mind.
Connect through Technology
We’re excited to share this sense of community using the magic of technology in a few ways.
The first is by using our All Products Search online database. By allowing our clients to see all the items we offer, we provide the opportunity for them to explore at their own pace and make note of any item that they would like to know more about. We love to share our knowledge.
*We’re currently hard at work adding our thousands of products to our All Products Search database. We hope to have it completed by fall of 2017. Our All Products Search database does not currently enable shoppers to purchase our products online, but we hope to add that feature sometime in the future.
The second is through Facebook and Instagram. If you’re interested in seeing and knowing about the latest products and events at Chicory Hill Herbs, these are ideal options for you.
And for those of you who just aren’t into Facebook and Instagram, the third is our website. Our Contact & Events page contains the latest and greatest, whether it is our Tea Time Tuesday Flavor of the Week, a featured special guest event or other happening.
Connect in Person
After you’ve checked out our All Products Search database, please be sure to stop by in person. Our knowledgeable staff is always happy to see you and have a wealth of knowledge to share.
