What began in 2004 as a minimalist boutique in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood that offered gentle products for people with sensitive skin has expanded to an internationally recognized and trusted name currently sold in 21 countries.

In 2010 when David Alperin opened Goose Barnacle, his upscale menswear boutique, steps from the western terminus of Atlantic Avenue, those closest to him thought he was crazy. Brooklyn Heights wasn’t exactly a retail destination, and prior to Barneys and the development of Brooklyn Bridge Park, most of the traffic in the area came from people queuing to get on the BQE. But when Alperin, a lifelong Brooklyn Heights resident, decided in 2009 that he wanted to open a store, he knew his neighborhood was the only place he wanted to do it. On an unseasonably warm November afternoon, we sat down with David at Goose Barnacle to discuss his store, philosophy, and future plans.   MG: Tell us about(read more)

Where in the world is M+G… Merz Apothecary, Chicago

Anthony Qaiyum from the historic Merz Apothecary, a Chicago landmark with 140 year experience. What was it like growing up in Merz Apothecary? Hah, It was really cool for us. My parents were always so busy that we got to really explore and do some things we shouldn’t do. We would discover the books from the 1800’s with formulas so it was kind of like having a Harry Potter dungeon. We felt like we had a secret place that no one else was able to experience. Will the beard be making a comeback soon? I’m itching for it! I’m kind of in the mood for a beard again. I would say most likely before the holidays. I’m not sure if(read more)
