York, Maine, April 1, 2022 – Today, award-winning specialty food and home goods producer Stonewall Kitchen opened its first ever Stonewall Home Company Store, located at the company’s campus headquarters in York, Maine.

Stonewall Kitchen will also feature its Fine Home Keeping line and and its Stonewall Home brand.
“We’re thrilled about this opportunity,” said Stonewall Kitchen’s Vice President of Retail Operations, Alyce Morris. “The Stonewall Home store, along with our flagship Company Store, Café and beautiful garden will really add to the overall guest experience here on campus. We’re so much more than jams these days, and this beautiful new space will glisten with wonderful soaps, lotions, candles, home goods and garden décor!”
Stonewall Kitchen acquired Michel Design Works in October of 2021, a brand that features elegantly designed and premium crafted personal and home care products, and Village Candle in January of 2020, a brand of fragranced candles, gifts and accessories. Like its sister stores, the Stonewall Home Company Store has a premium feel, but is designed to look and feel unique.
