A peek inside the new RAD Soap Co. store at Stuyvesant Plaza

RAD Soap Co. store Stuyvesant Plaza

We had a few minutes Monday to stop into the new RAD Soap Co. store at Stuyvesant Plaza.

It's the first permanent retail location for the local company, which started in Cohoes and now produces its soaps, creams, and other personal care items in Menands. Up to this point RAD products has been available local farmers' markets (such as Troy and Schenectady), in various retail locations, and online.

The Stuyvesant Plaza shop, in the storefront previously occupied by the Sorelle Gallery, opened November 18. Its hours are Monday-Friday 10 am-9 pm, Saturday 10 am-8 pm, and Sunday 11 am-6 pm.

Here's a handful of pics from the new store...

I stopped by for the grand opening "soap cutting" last week and I love this place already. I've been buying RAD soaps and such from farmers markets and Whole Foods for about a year or so (seriously, try the Death Wish Highly Caffinated body bar and cream...it's miraculous stuff). But now it's terrific having all the products in one store because everything smells so good that I want to try it all twice.
