A Rainier cookie biz moves to Tumwater
From The Olympian:
Goodbye Main Street Cookie Company, hello Luv Cookies. The longtime Rainier-based cookie business has closed and moved to Tumwater where it’s set to reopen Monday, Nov. 7 as Luv Cookies, said founder and now co-owner Joycelyn Zambuto.
“We needed the space, we needed to expand and we needed a new location,” she said, adding that the Rainier location was nearly 100 years old and only about 1,000 square feet. Her new site at 804 79th Ave. SE, Suite 104, is three times that size, Zambuto said.
The new location is off Old Highway 99, across from Olympia Regional Airport and next to Spud’s grocery store.
Buy why change the name of the business?
Zambuto said they couldn’t make the previous name proprietary because “main street” is such a common business name. But with Luv Cookies, the business was able to “secure a name that was ours,” she said. It wasn’t an easy decision, but made it with input from those she works with, including her business and life partner Ray Hardee, she said.
Luv Cookies is set to have a soft opening at 9 a.m. Monday, Nov. 7. The store’s regular hours are 9-6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 10-3 p.m. Saturdays. A grand opening is planned for Nov. 14.
