Scouting Report | When you want to shop local...

by Addie Linn | Apr 30, 2021

When you want to shop local...
Make a trip to the “dopest general store” on Martini Corner in Midtown. What started as a traveling pop-up shop has now morphed into a permanent storefront. Sharing a space with the brand new Made in KC Cafe, The Black Pantry is a retail shop featuring local goods produced by Black makers in Kansas City. From candles and bath salts to groceries and housewares, there’s a little bit of everything for everyone. 

For the happy campers… 
… or the not-so-happy campers. Could an outdoor staycation be just what you need to relieve some tent-sion? Suite Tea Co. is a local company that creates upgraded camping experiences (a.k.a. glamping) right here in Kansas City. Whether it’s a getaway with your S.O. or a nature retreat with friends, there’s a tent suite made for you. 

Speaking of escapes… 
If a getaway sounds nice but you’re more of the indoorsy type, look no further than Condor’s Cove. The pop-up Tiki bar concept is setting up shop in your favorite KC establishments and hopping all over town. With a tropical atmosphere and killer cocktails, the cove makes for a perfect evening. 

Life on top… 
Kansas City’s high-paying jobs and low cost of living never fail to attract the best and brightest. Self Financial recently ranked KC as the No. 3 best city for recent college grads while LinkedIn touts KC’s net migration gains among the top in the country. Read up on other ratings KC has racked up in 2021.
