True North in Morris expands location

MORRIS – The Grundy Chamber recently helped True North celebrate its 10,000 square-foot expansion with a ribbon cutting kicking off the store’s recent “Grand Party’versary.”

True North is owned by Stacey and Erik Olson and is located at 539 Bedford Road in Morris. It’s an antique store featuring 100 vendors, but it’s not your average antique shop.

“True North is a new type of antique store, where we believe shopping should be an adventure. Recently expanded, you can now explore almost 10,000 square feet. True North has a little bit of everything -antiques, vintage, salvage, craft supplies, handmade, gifts, furniture and so much more,” Stacey Olson said. “There’s an Arcade, a ‘Happy!Space’, a recycled clothing garage, a bookstore, an indoor swing and so much more!”

On Aug. 14 the Olsons, Morris Mayor Richard Kopczick, and Grundy Chamber Membership Director Amanda Hiller kicked off True North’s 7th anniversary and expansion party with a ribbon cutting to celebrate.

True North’s expansion allows for 30 additional vendors to be added. It is now made up of 100 small business owners.

“When you shop at True North you’re there for the experience. Stacey and Erik are always thinking outside of the box to offer more for their customers, and to attract more people to visit Morris as a whole,” Chamber President & CEO Christina Van Yperen said. “As business owners they are innovative and as community members they go above and beyond for this city.”

With the expansion True North has also extended its hours to Monday through Sunday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“With every purchase, you are shopping local and helping a single mom, a retired grandparent or a young college graduate just starting out,” Stacey Olson said. “The money you spend locally, stays locally. All the items at True North are recycled or handmade, and everything handmade is made right here in the USA. We believe in supporting one another and shopping local.”
