“It’s really great how the mayor and some of the town’s business people came together to welcome me in this official ribbon cutting,” said Chadwick, who also has a 11-year-old store in Hoboken. “I’ve never experienced anything like this in my life. When I opened in Hoboken the town didn't do anything like this. Westfield a very special place and happy to call it my newest home for my newest store. I’m very lucky to be surrounded by caring people like the mayor and chamber of commerce, plus Sherry Cronin.”

Not long after the shop first opened this month, Chadwick helped organize a donation drive in town for victims of Hurricane Harvey. To read about that, click here.
