Shop Local at Kimball Junction
Kimball Junction can be easy to overlook if you’re on the way to the mountain or historic Old Town. But tucked back near the Swaner Nature Preserve, you will find a plethora of locally owned and operated businesses, services, restaurants and workout facilities. This local treasure is filled with many hidden gems waiting to become your new favorite place to visit.
Here are six of our favorite local go-tos, but these are merely the tip of the Kimball iceberg.
Chop Shop is Kimball Junction’s first and only full-service butchery. Chef John Courtney helped bring the butcher shop and tasting room to life with his knowledge and expertise.
Locally sourced, sustainable and high-quality products are the Shop’s cornerstone, as Chef Courtney fosters relationships with the farmers, ranchers and purveyors used by the shop. In their words, better quality “just tastes better.” He focuses on whole-animal butchery, which means he can give clients hard-to-find cuts of meat and specialty items.
Beyond the butcher counter, Chop Shop crafts wood-fired Detroit-style pizzas, European-style deli sandwiches and gourmet to-go foods. The shop is the ideal source for charcuterie meats and cheeses and pantry items like crackers, oils, vinegars and caviar.
Whether you’re looking for a specialty item, want guaranteed great quality meats or a tasty meal, Chop Shop is an easy choice.
The goal of PC Yoga Collective is three-fold: to provide a supportive environment for yoga instructors, growth and accessibility for clients and students, and to bring the best instructors to the community.
In most traditional yoga studios, the instructor makes the same rate per class, regardless of attendees. Many times this means the instructor makes less than one dollar per student. So where does the rest of the class fee go? PC Yoga operates differently, so its instructors are paid their worth, more than half of the class fee, whether that’s a $15 drop-in or a class pack.
Classes at PC Yoga Collective are heated with radiant heat. Rather than forced air systems blowing hot air and dust around, heated panels mimic the sun’s warmth on the floor and yogis’ bodies. And coming soon to Kimball Junction is PC Yoga Collective’s sister studio, B-Side, providing non-heated yoga classes.
