Popular online retailer opening shop on Devine Street

A Columbia resident who has built a thriving online business will be opening a brick-and-mortar shop on Devine Street next month.

Sarah Monteith Rama will open Duck Duck Goose at 2816 Devine St. The shop will be an extension of her online business, which sells her curated collection of classic children’s clothing online.

Rama is renovating and updating the retail space, which has been home to Little Lambs & Ivy, a children’s boutique that closed this summer.

While Duck Duck Goose will offer many children’s clothing lines and brands, Rama also plans to carry lines new to the Columbia market, including La Petite Fleur, Little English, The Beaufort Bonnet Company, Harding-Lane, Cheeni, Florence Eiseman and Johnnie-O. Duck Duck Goose will offer many layette options for babies, clothing lines for older boys and girls and gifts and accessories.

Rama plans to continue her online service of free, same-day delivery of gift-wrapped products ordered on the website or over the phone. Duck Duck Goose also will offer a baby registry service so that new parents and their friends and relatives can shop locally as they prepare to welcome a new baby.

“As a longtime resident of Columbia, I’m so excited to be expanding my online business and opening Duck Duck Goose on Devine Street,” said Rama. “I look forward to greeting our customers face-to-face and giving them their tried and true brands of children’s clothing and also introducing Columbia to a few new lines as well. It’s a dream come true to have the ability to contribute to the local economy in a town that I love so dearly.”
