The SIBExpo’s SISTAH SHOP Grand Opening in ATLANTA
at The Atlantic Station on Juneteenth Weekend
Friday, JUNE 17, 2022
The much-loved SIBExpo has done it again, but this time by way of their leading, department-store style shop, The SISTAH SHOP!
The Sistah Shop is a lifestyle mega-retailer promoting and creating opportunities for brands founded by women of color. They will open their second stationary location at Atlanta’s premier landmark, Atlantic Station. The shop will feature products from over 75 local and national Black woman-owned businesses, with items including clothing & accessories, skincare, home goods, art, and curated collectibles.
The 4,040-square-foot shop will open its doors at 265 18th St., Suite 4180, with a grand opening celebration set for Juneteenth weekend on Friday, June 17.
SIB Founder Aisha Taylor Issah and her highly anticipated team will be in town and ready to go! You know they are bringing the vibes and motion for entrepreneurship advocacy, and prosperity amongst the community. With that, we know comes the fun, music, networking, and valuable connections with other locals and even visitors who are crossing state lines to support this amazing movement.
The SIBExpo is proud to bring its expansion to the city of Atlanta, which has always been such a great support for their touring expos throughout the year. They are excited to introduce such a dynamic and intentional resource to the city, especially considering the amount of active, black woman owned entities within Atlanta’s reach. The SISTAH SHOP is like no other, and beyond what one can imagine, based on what we know to already be available.
The Sistah Shop will sell products on a consignment basis during the week and will allow local vendors to host pop-ups on the weekends. This hybrid model allows The Sistah Shop to showcase more than 500 brands annually. The unique shop has been dubbed a “sanctuary for sisterhood,” and draws in customers with its clean, modern concept featuring shelves lining the walls with products, clothing racks in the center, a photo booth and an upbeat playlist that echoes through the storefront while customers shop. The Sistah Shop has already received an influx of applications from vendors who are eager to participate.
“Atlanta has long been a focus market for our brand, so it was a no-brainer to open our second location here,” said Aisha Taylor Issah, Founder & CEO of Sistahs in Business Expo. “Atlantic Station is a true community destination for Atlanta, with a diverse customer base and a great mix of shops, entertainment and dining options. Through our new location, we’re thrilled to offer local Black women-owned companies a platform to share their products and services with the city!”
