The Duke Chronicle has an interesting story today about the Ox & Rabbit, the new soda fountain-cum-sundries shop opening in the old McDonald's Drug Store space on Ninth Street. The store's opening has been variously reported at Joe's place, here, and in the local papers, but the Chronicle has a bit more detail in its coverage today.
Among the story's highlights:
- The Ox & Rabbit, helmed by Bryan Nickell and Erin Walker-McMullen, will open up this November on Ninth Street.
- The store's "sundries" will include baby care items, as previously reported in the local papers, but such items will be "unique and hip and a little more funky."
- Other items for sale will include 'housewares, cards, chocolate, clothing, [and] bath products," with a focus on items from artists and craftspeople or their direct sales arms, not wholesalers.
- The owners anticipate a price mix from low to high that can appeal to impoverished college students and young children all the way up to better-heeled shoppers.
