Children's Shop Opening Second Location

Posted By LocalShops1, Monday, March 30, 2015
  • Growing Up in St Petersburg recently announced they will be opening a second location, this one in Tampa's Tampa Heights neighborhood.
  • Melane and Doug Nelson opened their original shop at 689 Dr MLK Jr St N in St. Petersburg to help parents find eco-friendly products.
  • They explain: "After having our first child, we quickly became more conscious about the environment we live in and what products we were using with our child. We began making small steps and over five years have incorporated eco-friendly products in every facet of our lives. We've shared this knowledge with our friends and family every chance we get. Upon learning we were pregnant with our second child, it became even more important to start those eco-friendly practices from the beginning. Unfortunately, in the Tampa Bay Area there were no local resources for learning about these products, so we spent a great deal of time online researching different products and the pros and cons of each. In this process, we learned that we have a great passion for this world and again were sharing that passion with friends and family. It became evident that we needed to share this and thus Growing Up was born."
  • The new venue, a partnernship with Barefoot Birth, will be one-stop shopping for all births needs and natural parenting products. The new shop is expected to open April 2015.
