Downtown boutique has new name, expanded product lines

Oct. 18, 2018

Lot 2029 has been rebranded as Mint + Basil, as the business adds specialty food and home decor.

The boutique is based in Fargo and owned by Hope Goldammer.

She expanded to Sioux Falls in 2014 and to her current space at 333 S. Phillips Ave. a year later.

Mint + Basil was a kitchen and home boutique she began as a separate store in Fargo. She then merged it with the apparel boutique Lot 2029 and is doing the same in Sioux Falls.

“It’s my two favorite herbs,” Goldammer said. “I liked how it sounded. So we are rebranding into that one all-encompassing lifestyle brand.”

She has added some new food products, including dips and “Soberdough” brew bread – mixes that call for a can of beer. There’s also a large selection of balsamic vinegars and olive oils coming.

More interior changes will be made in the coming months.

“We’ll bring more brands into the store, and we brought a lot of inventory with us and have shipments in our back room,” Goldammer said. “We’re getting big new displays built.”

The plan is to launch online sales next month.

Goldammer also owns a sister apparel brand, Onyx + Pearl in Fargo but isn’t planning to bring it to Sioux Falls.

“We’re not looking to really expand,” she said. “We just want to stick with what we have and making our storefronts and online better and better.”

Sioux Falls has been a strong market, she added.

“Sioux Falls has always been amazing since day one. When we moved to the new location, we noticed a jump in sales, but it’s been really consistent. It’s probably our best store out of all our locations. It seems like people really embrace downtown here.”
