The owner of the Boneyard surf shop plans to consolidate two existing shops in the Main Street building formerly occupied by Edgartown Hardware for 64 years in the heart of the town.
Parthenia “Tuna” Kiersted said the shops located on 250 Upper Main Street and 6 Kelly Street in Edgartown will close and she will reopen in April at 64 Main Street.
Ben Hall Jr., owner of the Main street property, said this week that infrastructure renovations were being completed so that Ms. Kiersted can complete interior redesign of the space. The space has an estimated 2,500 square feet of first floor retail space, one of the largest retail spaces on Main Street.
“We’re very excited to have the Boneyard on Main Street. Tuna is an experienced retailer who knows how to handle the unique nature of retailing on the Island,” Mr. Hall said. Ms. Kiersted also owns Petunia’s Shoes on Main Street.
Ms. Kiersted said the move to the new location is exciting. “We plan business as usual in April. Clothing for kids and adults. Paddle boards and board rentals, of course. With larger space, we’re looking at expanding the product line, perhaps adding more beach-oriented toys for kids. Certainly we have the opportunity to increase selection and sizes,” she said.
Trish Lyman will continue to manage the store, she said.
