Grand Indeed: Dory & Ginger Opens Its Doors On North Street
Lisa Green reports from Pittsfield. There was no Dory or Ginger per se to greet guests at the grand opening of the Dory & Ginger boutique, but owners Laurie Tierney (“Dory”) and Cara Carroll (“Ginger”) were delighted with the turnout on Friday, July 3. The store, with the motto Live and Give on North, offers home décor and gifts, some of which are from local businesses and some not, but all items you probably haven’t seen anywhere else. Refreshments included a soda made with shrub syrup from The Hudson Standard and Chef Brian Alberg’s special deviled eggs from Eat on North. The store, adjacent to Hotel on North, makes a welcome addition to the ongoing evolution of North Street. Above, owners Laurie Tierney and Cara Carroll.
