Westwood Specialty Oil Shop Opens New Location
Olive Branch & Grape Vine opened a new shop in Ramsey.
A specialty olive oil and vinegar shop that opened its first location in Westwood last year has settled into its second location, on Main Street in Ramsey.
Olive Branch & Grape Vine officially opened to the public Friday, the store announced in a release over the weekend.
The unique shop caries premium olive oils and vinegars, as well as oil-based products like soaps, lotions, shampoos and conditioners, and loose leaf teas, ceramic pieces, cookware and more. It also offers special event items, like wedding favors, gift baskets, and olive oil tasting parties.
Paul Karoyan, the owner told Patch last month that he opened his first store after he added specialty olive oils and balsamic vinegars to his diet.
“I was really just looking for a way to lower my cholesterol, and to use more healthy ingredients when I was cooking at home,” he said. “It worked so well, and really helped with my health, I thought sharing it with people might work.”
Karoyan said he is happy to expand into Ramsey’s downtown.
The new shop opened at 100 E. Main, the previous home of Lolo’s Sweets & Sundries, which closed in August.
