VERONA — Turning Stone Resort Casino and Syracuse fashion retailer Joel Shapiro say the Commons at Turning Stone, a group of four independent boutiques, will open for business on Nov. 1.

Turning Stone and Shapiro first announced the retail expansion in early August. Shapiro will operate the retail shops. He also runs Syracuse’s Mr. Shop, a menswear store, which his family has owned since the 1960s.

The new boutiques will replace two existing retail stores, Turning Stone said. 

Syracuse–based Hayner Hoyt Corporation handled the construction work on the project. QPK Design, another Syracuse company, provided the design work on the project.

The new stores will be located in the resort’s Winter Garden, near the entrance to The Tower hotel, in an area that Turning Stone considers a “prime location.”

The Commons at Turning Stone will feature 4,500 square feet of boutique shopping, with a mix of both men’s and women’s contemporary fashions and active wear, jewelry and a “selection of accessories,” Turning Stone said.

The stores include Revel Supply, which offers contemporary men’s and women’s apparel and casual wear.

They also include Willow & Jaye, which will offer women’s “stylish” clothing.

In addition, Polly Cooper will have “modern” women’s fashion and apparel.

The stores also include Juniper, which offers women’s jewelry and accessories from brands like Swarovski.

“The new stores will add to the vibrant energy of Turning Stone,” Shapiro boasted in a Turning Stone release issued Aug. 2. “Shoppers will love the choice of colors, fabrics and styles. These shops will offer a friendly atmosphere that’s full of excitement, while maintaining the premium service which guests are already accustomed to at Turning Stone.”
