A new women’s clothing and accessory boutique, Hudson & Company, will open June 18 in the beautifully restored corner building at College Avenue and Minnesota Street in St. Joseph.
Hudson & Company is the fourth boutique location for Ann Hudson, who also owns NEAR + NORTH in Sartell, Nisswa and Wayzata.
In addition to clothing and accessories, Hudson will expand the offering to include home decor and gift items from local artists and vendors.
“We are thrilled to be a part of this community and honored to occupy this beautiful, historic building right in the heart of St. Joe,” Hudson said.
The location, which got its start in 1900 as Frank X. Timmer’s Saloon and General Store, was redeveloped and designed by Shannon Wiger of Shannon Wiger & Co.
