Green Mommy Store expands into own location

TOWN 'N COUNTRY — When Shannon Green's daughter was a baby, a persistent diaper rash caused her to switch to cloth diapers.

From that point, Green began educating others on the benefits of cloth diapers and selling them online. Four years ago, Green opened up a space for her Green Mommy Store inside Reruns 4 Little Ones Resale Boutique.

"It just kept growing," said Green, the owner.

Due to her expanding product line and the popularity of the items she carries, Green opened up her own store in early July. Located in the same plaza as Reruns 4 Little Ones, the Green Mommy Store offers a large selection of cloth diapers, including Apple Cheeks.

The store also sells a variety of baby carriers, such as Buboose, Lenny Lamb and Tula.

"I'm the only retailer in Tampa that sells Tula," Green said. "It's a very popular baby carrier."

The Green Mommy Store has Baltic amber necklaces, teething necklaces, clothing and a variety of other items for babies. The store also sells milk, eggs, and soap from the local Dancing Goat Farm.

Twice a week, Green hosts a breastfeeding support group in the store. There is also a lactation consultant onsite.

Green said that moms come to her store not only to shop, but also find other moms to talk with and share information.

"It's a store for everybody," said Green. "It's a community store."

The Green Mommy Store is located at 8802 Rocky Creek Drive, No. 108.

It is open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, call (813) 898-2553, or visit green mommystore.com.
