The Swank Company to open store in Riverside Village
Those visiting North Augusta and Riverside Village will be able to shop at a women’s clothing, accessories and gifts boutique.
Rafy Bassali, owner of the Swank Company, confirmed a store will be opening in one of the retail spaces connected to the outside of SRP Park, the new Augusta GreenJackets stadium.
Bassali said the main reason the business likes the area for a location is becasue it’s a nice area and there will be residential living spaces around.
“We like the area and we think the demographic fits our store pretty well,” Bassali said.
Bassali said Swank sells women’s clothing, gifts and accessories. There are currently two locations in Augusta.
Swank will join a Southbound Smokehouse and Sweetwater Brewing Company combination in the retail spaces. The Southbound Smokehouse and Sweetwater location also opens into the stadium concourse and is set to be open in late July to early August.
Bassali said it would be great if the Swank store could open sometime this year.
“We’re excited about it and we’re excited to see everything else building up around it as well,” Bassali said.
Riverside Village is a development in North Augusta, often called a “live, work, play” development, and will include SRP Park, a Crowne Plaza hotel, multiple apartment complexes, and retail and dining stores.
