September 2017. Stillwater, MN. The Greater Stillwater Chamber of Commerce welcomed newly re-opened and rebranded Pinch ‘n Rub Spice & Tea Hub at a ribbon cutting celebration on September 7. The event was very well attended and included an unveiling of their new brand and logo.
Established in 2012 as Spice & Tea Company, the well-established retailer has been highly successful on Main Street Stillwater. In May of 2017, a heavy rainstorm and a roof leak brought enough water into the store to result in a 100% loss of inventory and damage to the space. Owner Nancy Figueroa decided to turn her unexpected misfortune into something sassy and fun. With the help of Keech Media, she rebranded her store as Pinch ‘n Rub Spice & Tea Hub which includes an edgy, fun and catchy new logo depicting a chili pepper pair of legs with a finger pinch. “I had thought about doing a sassy brand like this when I initially opened the store and did not” stated Nancy, “it has been so exciting and fun to move forward with it now, and my new logo is unforgettable!”
Pinch ‘n Rub Spice & Tea Hub is a high energy playful shop filled with small batches of the freshest and finest spices, salts, sugars, teas and coffees from around the world. They love to introduce their customers to new flavors, inspire them to have fun in the kitchen, and bring out their inner foodie! Often sharing recipes and ideas, their goal is to expand the home cooking experience with endless possibilities. Pinch ‘n Rub Spice & Tea Hub offers their very popular hand mixed blends, as well as gourmet salts and sugars to awaken creativity.
Store hours are Monday – Wednesday 11-6, Thursday – Saturday 11-7, and Sundays 11-4.
