Steger Creek, New Shop Offering Gifts, Home Decor and More, to Open May 31

ROANOKE, Va. (May 14, 2018) — From jewelry to scarves to home décor items and more — the Taubman Museum of Art is pleased to welcome Steger Creek as the Museum’s new gift shop partner.

After opening to the public Thursday, May 31, the Museum and Steger Creek will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday, June 7, at 11 a.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Steger Creek is independently owned and operated by Michael and Alex Pace, who established their fine gifts and collectibles boutique nearly 15 years ago.

The Pace’s current Steger Creek location on Starkey Road will relocate and they will open two new locations: Steger Creek at the Taubman Museum of Art, and Steger Creek at the Railway Station, located at the Virginian Railway Passenger Station at the corner of Williamson Road and Jefferson Street, the latter of which will open around July 1.

“Many other business owners and local friends have encouraged us to have a presence downtown,” said Michael Pace. “We will be offering many exclusive products that can be found nowhere else. In addition, we will be offering several lines of jewelry from local and regional artists. We’re excited to partner with the Taubman Museum and cater to the many visitors to the Museum and downtown Roanoke!”

Hours of operation at Steger Creek at the Taubman Museum of Art will reflect those of the Museum overall: Wednesday through Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday 12-5 p.m., with extended hours until 9 p.m. the first Friday of each month.

“Steger Creek has been a beloved retail institution in our community for many years, so we’re honored that they chose to open a new location at the Museum,” said Cindy Petersen, executive director of the Taubman Museum of Art. “I have no doubt our guests and other downtown visitors will love their gift selection. With a new Museum gift shop and the recently opened Morning Brew Coffee Company, the Taubman is even more of a destination for those who love art, good food, and beautiful things.”
