Just Sprucin' Up Southern Pines
The R. Riveter Flagship Store
is located in the heart of downtown Southern Pines, NC. -- a town whose roots run deep within the military community. The shop, itself, embodies the R. Riveter spirit. It is simple, modern and has a powerful presence among the other local businesses on Pennsylvania Ave. It has also become a second home to our local Riveters
and their families, which is why we decided give it a little face-lift this year!
The renovation included interior updates (to make our customers more comfortable and give them a more authentic shopping experience), as well as an exterior paint job! We could not have been more proud of our Riveters
during this time. They truly poured their hearts + souls into the new storefront look and kept our customers updated of its progress via social media
Not long after the finishing touches had been added to the exterior of the store and the paint had dried, we were thrilled to receive an email from the Chairman of the Southern Pines Appearance Commission
notifying us that we would be awarded the Southern Pines "Spruced Up" Award.
Each year, four commercial businesses who have "spruced up" Southern Pines are chosen to receive this award. R. Riveter Co-Founder, Cameron Cruse, and Retail Manager, Brittany McNeal, were invited to the Southern Pines Town Council meeting to accept our plaque, which was presented by the Mayor.
We are so honored to be a recipient of the Southern Pines "Spruced Up" Award. This community means so much to our company and we are so thankful to our neighbors for welcoming us with open arms. We look forward to helping make these historical streets even more attractive in the coming years!.
We would like to congratulate the other recipients of this award, including our friends at Gold's Gym + our local VFW.
