The Narwhal and The Manatee
Owners: Megan Elizabeth Sutton and Traci Henning-Kolberg
We chose to lease a space at the City Exchange because the rent is reasonably set to allow small businesses such as ours to have a storefront downtown without going broke in the process. The sales we generate allow us to purchase raw materials and supplies as well as hire employees to help us stay on top of the demand that has been building in the few months we’ve been open.
Favorite Picks: Our signature products are our cupcake bath fizzies. With these little delights, the bottom “cupcake” part is a bath fizzy and the top “frosting” is a super moisturizing and exfoliating sugar scrub. We are really pleased with how realistic they look and even more pleased with how well they work. A bestseller right now is our Neat, Sweet, Feet Foot Stick. It is definitely a must-have for summer weather. We refer to it as lip balm for your feet: it’s in stick form, solid and easy to apply without the need to rub it in with your hands. It is made with cocoa butter, shea butter, wheat germ oil and beeswax which all work together to soothe cracked heels and soften calluses. With this product the exterior counts every bit as much as the interior. Each foot stick comes in a paperboard tube that is recyclable, compostable and biodegradable.

We chose to lease a space at City Exchange for a few different reasons. First, we really liked the atmosphere and energy the space provides. Second, we really wanted to be a part of the growing downtown shopping experience. Finally, we love what the City Exchange offers: a place where new businesses that aren’t able to take on the expense of their own physical structure have an opportunity to have an actual storefront.
Daily Food Menu: We offer a healthy food option downtown for on-the-go individuals. We serve salads, wraps, vitality bowls and our “Power Lunch” smoothie. Our ingredients are either organic or sourced by a local farmer. All of our items are have no GMOs, no pesticides and no herbicides.
Cleanse and Wholesale Programs: We have many customers who love our delivery service of cleanses and juices. We deliver right to your home or office on Tuesdays or Fridays between 4 and 8 a.m..
Juicing Kit: We offer juicing kits for individuals that want to juice themselves, but don’t have time for all the sourcing and preparation. We do all the work for you and deliver portioned kits that are washed and cut ready for any juicer.
