Alex and Zoe explain that the reasons they established Igigi General Store are simple: “We live our lives this way. We get to go to a place we love every day. We enjoy spending our time there, whether it’s working in the store with customers, helping them to find that special gift, designing a kitchen that’s functional as well as original, or sourcing furniture to make a space truly unique. This is why we founded Igigi”
