Duncan and York, new general store, coming to downtown Asheville


Two Asheville area women, Stephanie Duncan and Lindsay York (their maiden names), are planning to open up a new general store in downtown Asheville. Their store, Duncan and York, will be located next to Farm Burger on Patton Avenue, in the location that was home for decades to A Dancer’s Place. The location is close to Pack Square.

In a short phone interview, Duncan described the store as a “modern market” that will highlight locally made, handcrafted gifts and items. They hope to be open in October. Much more to come as these two entrepreneurs get all the details finalized.

While I think it’s kinda neat that the name of the business is almost identical to my actual name, I am finding it somewhat problematic to suddenly be inundated with emails intended for them.

I’ve walked by the store front many times, and had the pleasure of being shown around the very-soon-to-be-open store by both owners, and all I can say is Love it! Love it! Love it! I know where I’ll be getting all my birthday, Mother’s Day, and Christmas gifts for years to come. And both owners are truly delightful!

I had the same idea….if you can post contact info I have a friend who makes local granite tables, art pieces, and other cool stuff that is looking for places to sell his stuff.

Are you two ladies suuuuure you don’t want to open a restaurant, brewery, or boutique hotel? Totally sure? Have your minds made up already? Nobody opens *stores* anymore… that’s just so five years ago.

Really? Because small business owners are booming regardless of their “type” of establishment. Why don’t YOU go open a boutique hotel since that is apparently the “thing to do”. This store will be an amazing little gem, so when they go big time, and have Duncan and Yorks in cities around the US, you’re going to feel like a douche.

Actually, Roni, I think you’ll feel like a douche when you realize that you totally misread a little bit of sarcastic parody.

Is there any contact information available for local artists and crafters to get information about selling their products at this awesome new store?

Jason Sandford August 28, 2013 - 3:17 pm

I’ll ask Stephanie…
