For this week’s “Business Spotlight” we sat down with Candace Parrish, Ph.D., Founder & Chief Creator of Odelia, Marie, and Patrice, which is located at 117 W Gay Street Suite 204!
1. Tell me about your store and any particular things you believe make it unique.
Odelia, Marie, and Patrice (OMandP) is a luxury self-care company that produces earth-friendly beauty & home products while using our platform for activism and social justice. Sustainability means a lot to our company, making OMandP one of the most decadent ways to care for yourself and the wellbeing of the earth.
2. What services or products do you offer?
We create handmade, vegan, and natural soaps, body butters, herb-infused beauty products, and candles. In an attempt to create less waste and pollution to our earth, we use vegan, sustainable, and earth-friendly practices and packaging from conception to shipping.
3. How long have you been in business?
OMandP was established in 2006 and revamped in Orlando, Florida in 2018. We had the pleasure of joining the Downtown West Chester community to open our first physical location in Fall 2021.
4. What do you love most about being located in West Chester?
I absolutely love how welcoming and supportive the downtown community has been! I have loved meeting so many wonderful people who share great stories and highlights about West Chester. The people of Downtown West Chester love self-care and we love providing good products to help you all in that journey.
5. What can you tell me about the culture or atmosphere of your store?
When designing the store, I wanted the interior to be as comforting and decadent as our products. The company was revamped in Florida so that branding was naturally influenced by the serene plant and ocean life. Thus, I hand-painted a mural that pays tribute to the florals that inspired the design origins of our company. It’s definitely a welcoming and cozy atmosphere.
6. Is there anything else you would like to share about your store?
OMandP represents a blend of tropical and northeastern regions, so you’ll often find fragrances that blend scents from each area, like Frazer & Coconut and Alpine Gardens.
