    Grand Opening Of The Batavia Boardwalk Shops

    The Batavia Boardwalk Shops will celebrate their grand opening weekend starting Friday, May 20, 2022 at 114 E. Wilson Street in downtown Batavia.

    Downtown Batavia’s Boardwalk Shops are getting a new group of tenants this year, keeping the ever-changing flow of products fresh – 9 new tiny businesses and one returning tenant. This summer marks the third season of the city’s boardwalk-style shopping destination. Tiny house- styled shops feature yearly rotating tenants, making for an exciting shopping and browsing experience.

    From Scandanavian baked goods and charcuterie boards, to wood-turned bowls, hand poured soaps and children’s clothing and toys, the mix of shops is eclectic this season.

    The Boardwalk Shops were designed to help house and foster small businesses, and create a place where shoppers might find their favorite, new local products. The shops serve as a type of “business incubator,” allowing owners to test the feasibility of their plans before signing a long-term lease or sinking their roots in Batavia.

    “After the amazingly successful and supportive season that our Boardwalk Shops experienced the last two years, this year’s group is sure to see great success,” said Beth Walker, Batavia MainStreet Executive Director. “We are so excited to kick off the shopping season on the Boardwalk and hope to see everyone dedicated to the shop-local lifestyle down on the Boardwalk.”

    The Batavia Boardwalk Shops season begins on Friday, May 20 and runs through Sunday, December 18. All shops will be open on Fridays from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturdays, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; and Sundays 11 p.m.-4 p.m.

    The shops are located at 114 East Wilson Street across from Oak + Swine, Wilson Street Tavern, and Six Cypress Boutique.
