The Spice and Tea Exchange is set to open in November, following the sale of the former location of Fai Thai Kitchen brokered by Oliver Smith Realty and Development Company. The store is a part of a franchise from Florida. The new location is opening at 522 S. Gay Street with the help of the owner, Annette Morejon, who got the idea for the store after visiting a friend’s spice store in Italy. The store will sell a variety of spices, teas, and salts. In addition, the store will have a hot and cold tea bar for customers to try different teas.
