Good Fortune Soap Has Grand Opening Friday And Saturday

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Chattanooga native, Jennifer Strain, is expanding her manufacturing and Internet business to South Broad Street to create Chattanooga’s first and only Green Clean Store.  

Ms. Strain has been producing handmade natural soap and body products since 2006, and will open an interactive retail space where customers can blend their own custom essential oils and body products, while also learning about ingredients. The Green Clean Store will feature all of Good Fortune Soap’s products and gift sets, while also launching a new line of organic based facial products, and a bulk refill station for home cleaners. 

According to Ms. Strain, “You can bring your own jug and refill (non-toxic) laundry soap and cleaner, or buy natural ingredients to make your own. You can also refill your lotions, washes, and home sprays, and reuse the same bottle each time. We are eliminating waste and making earth-friendly products affordable and attainable.” 

Good Fortune Soap has been selling their products at the Chattanooga Market for years, and has developed a following in Chattanooga, said Ms Strain. This is the perfect time for Good Fortune Soap to settle down in Chattanooga, and offer a home base for their customers. 

The grand opening will be Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.  Regular store hours are Wednesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and closed Monday and Tuesday.  There will also be a Holiday Open House on Shop Small Saturday with multiple vendors, discounts, prizes on Nov. 30 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. 

Good Fortune Soap: Chattanooga’s Green Clean Store is at 2644 Broad St., next to Shuptrine’s Gold Leaf Gallery and Ace Hardware.  For more information call 888.317-6468 or visit www.goodfortunesoap.com.
