BUS STOP + M CONCEPT SHOP // BRIDGING THE GREAT BROAD STREET DIVIDE / Why this ‘Across Broad’ retail collaboration represents the future of retail!

“It makes sense to offer a head-to-toe shopping experience to help shoppers enhance their wardrobes,” Brennan said.

“We thought this would be a great way to bring our customers together,” said Nguyen. “We are pretty much telling the same story of today’s modern woman.”

“Bus Stop Boutique owner Elena Brennan, and Ethan Nguyen, founder of M Concept Shop, have been chummy for years, and they love to shop at each other’s specialty stores.

Nguyen considers himself a caped drama king who is happiest when his footwear sparkles. Brennan, the city’s doyenne of must-have oxfords —I think Brennan single-handedly brought them back in style thanks to her three-year-old Bus Stop X collection — is all about the monochromatic flow.

If both of these South Street entrepreneurs — Bus Stop is on Fourth Street just above South, and M Concept is on the 1500 block of South Street — are willing to venture across the great Broad Street divide, then surely their customers will too.

Hence their new “Across Broad” retail collaboration.”
