We're Moving to a New Location!
Moving Day is finally here!!......
Everything is finally coming together...after a lot of work from the entire Olivü 426 Staff and our great team of Builders...we are finally ready to make the big move across the street into our new, permanent home at 502 North 8th Street. I'd like to thank everyone for their support over the last 10+ years... It's incredible to think it's been that long. We've made a lot of great friends and we look forward to our customers coming over to the new location with us. This location will give us the ability to fit more people into the store at our busy times of the year. It will also help us to continue to grow the online portion of our business...we are now shipping all around the world. Lastly, we are able to be on one floor instead of 3! That was a lot of running up and down stairs, lol. So please, now that we are on one floor you will need to refrain from bringing us the sweets we've been accustomed to. lol. Thank you again for being so supportive during this journey and we can't wait to see you soon!

The History of our New Building
For many of you who are local to Sheboygan, The Iconic "Jumes" Building is a part of your life-long memories. From the time you were little to the time you've grown, venturing downtown for a "Coney Island Dog and Milkshake" were the things childhood dreams were made of. Every time my dad walks into the store to check in on my progress he says, I could go for a Coney Dog. lol. There is so much history and nostalgia to the Downtown Sheboygan area, but we are happy to be filling the space of one of Sheboygan's most beloved buildings.
The original building, which a lot of people may not know, was built in 1910 as one of the first Downtown Banks in Sheboygan. 'Citizen's State Bank' opened it's doors to a proud Sheboygan community. Although the original newspaper article states the exterior of the building to be pleasing, it was the inside of the building that was worthy of special mention. Upon entering the new bank, one would be greeted with a stunning site. Every inch of the new bank was finished in Mahogany, Marble and Gold Leaf, with a marble floor, a stunning site for 1910, I’m sure. The bank’s vault was built of 24 inch brick walls and lined with burglar proof armor plate steel. The vault remains in the basement of the building to this day. And although we don't still have the Marble floors that once adorned the building, we hope you love the experience we've worked hard to create for you when you enter through our doors.
