New Store at Discovery Park of America Makes Local Merchandise Available to Guests

From Candy and Pottery to Homemade Soaps and Honey, the Hugh Wade Feed Store Provides a Unique Shopping Experience

Union City, Tenn. — Today, Discovery Park of America opened a new shopping experience with the addition of local merchandise inside the Hugh Wade Feed Store on Mill Ridge located on the north side of the heritage park grounds. “It’s a little mini-store on the ridge,” said Discovery Park’s gift shop manager, Lauren Sims. “We’re enhancing the Hugh Wade Feed Store by offering our guests the opportunity to purchase regionally-produced items in this unique space.”

For several months Sims has contacted artisans and other entrepreneurs in the area who might consider offering their creations in the new store. “I found delicious homemade mustards in Dyersburg and the most beautiful pottery I’ve ever seen in Martin,” Sims said. “Additionally, the graphic designer at Discovery Park, Caitlin Dowden, created a really cool ‘Hugh Wade Feed Store’ logo and we have branded T-shirts and coffee mugs that are truly one-of-a-kind.”
