Washington Street Outfitters moving down the street

Washington Street Outfitters is planning a move to a new location this fall.

WSO will move to the space at 186 S. Washington St. where the boutique will have room to expand.

WSO is owned by Zoe Dolch and Spenser Blackiston.

“The new space has the right aesthetic, gives us a larger area to work with, more storage in the back room, better ease of access, and more readily available parking, as well as a more visual storefront,” Dolch said in a release.

WSO got its start through the Laird Business Contest. Dolch and Blackiston submitted a business plan and competed with six other entrepreneurs to win one year of free rent for a space in the Laird Arcade, courtesy of the Tiffin Community Reinvestment Group.

“The Laird allowed us to get on our feet and learn,” Dolch said in a release. “We are thankful for the opportunity and experience, and we are ready to take what we’ve learned and use it on a larger scale.”
