Downtown St. John’s, on the corner of Duckworth Street and Holloway Street, you will find Posie Row & Co. It's a gorgeous, lovingly-restored Heritage Building with four stories of bright space filled with amazing things - gifts, housewares, art, clothing, sundries and more. Posie Row covers the ground floor and offers textiles from India, jewellery from Thailand, bowties from St. John’s, and so much more.
Anita Carroll started the company in the 90s to offer unique, hard-to-find, fair-trade goods from around the world. since then, Posie Row’s shelves have featured stock from all over the world as well as local products that showcase some of the talented makers of Newfoundland and Labrador. Hats, clothing, jewellery, books, journals, gifts, cards, housewares, plants, skincare, toys for kids, you name it - you can find it on their floors, or order online.
In 2017, the store next door on Duckworth Street became available and Anita added ‘& Co’ to the company name.
She opened the space to budding young businesses who were seeking a retail foothold downtown. Since then, small businesses have come and grown in this space. Some have stayed on long-term, while others, having taken advantage of foot traffic, the existing popularity of Posie Row, and the mentorship of a company that has been a downtown staple for over 20 years, have outgrown the floor space and moved on to their own shops.
Posie Row & Co is a different experience every time you visit!
Anita loves running a business in downtown St. John’s where she can offer something to everyone and support community growth by giving a leg up to other entrepreneurs. The Posie Row crew looks for ways to grow local. Check out the recent appearance on Grow Local Go Digital with Kim Todd.
