Origins is unveiling its new store concept Friday in SouthPark Mall. The cosmetics retailer will host a ribbon-cutting at 2:30 p.m. and a meet-and-greet with its vice president, Doreen Hatcher, as well as “Pretty Little Liars” actress Vanessa Ray.
Origins says the store redesign is a nod to its “plant to formula” process. In addition to now offering a free mini facial to shoppers, the new store features a free-standing product sample wall with rows of candy store-style jars, communal sinks in which to sample products and a complimentary gift-wrapping service.
Following the ribbon-cutting, Ray will make a special appearance at the store from 3-3:30 p.m.
For every product sold during its launch Friday, Origins will donate $1 to the Superior Moose Habitat ReLeaf Project in Superior National Forest, which supports forest restoration, Origins says.
Never miss a local story.
The Origins store at SouthPark is located near the Center Court, next to LeVian by Jared. It is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday from 12:30 p.m.-6 p.m.
