Long time business owner and restaurateur, Larry Wiggill, is ready to embark on a new adventure. Larry Wiggill owns Larry’s Spring Chicken Inn which has not only been known for its deep fried chicken but also for the gift shop contained inside the restaurant. Larry has long had a passion for gift shops and through the years the gift shop has expanded to include more and more merchandise. It has been a dream of his for quite a while to be able to open a separate gift shop to accommodate the growing décor. As space became available on Commercial Street, Larry remembered his childhood when Commercial Street was the place to shop. Loving historical things, such as the building his own restaurant is housed in, Commercial Street was a perfect fit for his new shop. Although Commercial Street is the official name, it holds the nickname of Front Street from the days when the train station was the main hub of Morgan. Holding true to this history, the store will be known as Front Street Gifts and Home Décor.
Opening the first week in October, the store will be housed in the building previously occupied by Subway. Many have already expressed excitement over having a store where they will be able to purchase gifts, food items, artwork and more without ever having to leave town. Hoping to help fill a great need ever since the local flower shop went out of business, Larry has also brought in a cooler with fresh flowers from Jimmy’s Flower Shop. Custom orders and funeral arrangements will also be offered.
Front Street Gifts will feature many products made right here in Utah. Those wanting local honey will be able to purchase Cox Honey out of Logan. Pioneer Valley Jam from Orem and other treats will surely satisfy. Stop on over to sample the tasty soup and dip mixes. High quality items such as a line of beautiful quilts and local artwork will be featured including that of local artist Darren Gygi. Seasonal items and collectables will be for sale along with many other items.
In November, Front Street Gifts and Home Décor will celebrate with a fall open house to kick off the holiday season. Taking place November 9-10, to coincide with Chris Slate’s boutique held on the second floor of the Spring Chicken Inn, it will be a great time to kick that Christmas shopping into gear. This Christmas season don’t miss the holiday decorations as Larry will continue his rich tradition of beautiful Christmas trees and seasonal décor. Stop on in between the hours of 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. to check out the newest shop in Morgan.
