A Unique Boutique; Student Run Marketplace Opens In Hanover

HANOVER, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Just in time for the holidays, there's a new place to shop on the South Shore and it sells student made gifts and goodies.

The mission of the Cardinal Cushing Centers is to provide assistance and training to individuals with intellectual disabilities.

The center decided to expand their facility and add a new marketplace complete with classrooms.

The groundbreaking for the new marketplace was back in July 2019 and after over a year of hard work the doors opened on Monday. The shop is located on Route 53 in Hanover.

"It's a 20,000 square foot building which will support not only our long-standing student run businesses but also add six additional new state of the art classrooms for our vocational and high school students," President and CEO Michelle Markowitz said.

She adds the new facility will provide a new level of training for individuals with intellectual disabilities.

The student run shops include the Unique Boutique which sells products designed and assembled by the students including jewelry, artwork, and pottery.

There is also a student run greenhouse, cafe and recycle center.

Markowitz encourages the public to come, shop and find a holiday gift created by the students.
