State of the Unity
Unity Shoppe is on the move!
After 15 years at 1219 State Street, the popular charity has moved just a tiara’s toss down the road to new premises at 1209, a former antiques store.
The new shop is 4,900 sq. ft., which longtime executive Barbara Tellefson says gives them more room for storage and a senior center in the rear, which deals with 3,300 seniors annually.
The ribbon was cut by the tony triumvirate of Stephanie Armstrong of the Santa Barbara Chamber of Commerce, David Gonzalez, Unity Shoppe chair, and Christina Rodriguez, who has managed the store for 22 years.
Snaffling the canapés and quaffing the vino in the airy new space were Randy Weiss, Tom and Marcia Reed, Vince Caballero, John O’Neill, Jonatha King, John Corby, David Pritchard, and Sue Cappiello.
