Brick Monkey, a home furnishings store located at 2400 Broadway which is owned and operated by Stephanie Kolkka, opened in downtown Redwood City four years ago. Brick Monkey announces the opening of its next downtown venture, Brick Monkey Squared.
Brick Monkey’s new business, Brick Monkey Squared, is located just a block away at 816 Middlefield Rd. across from the Century 20 Theatre. Brick Monkey Squared is a store with unique, fun gifts and personal items for people of all ages and is open 7 days a week.
Stephanie opened Brick Monkey Squared with Gina Nicolo. Brick Monkey Squared is the first entrepreneurial adventure for Gina, an energetic 23 year old.
“I’ve been running retail and manufacturing businesses for 30 years, but I believe that business success requires a blending of long-established skills and cutting-edge skills, so Gina and I make a good team. We are teaching one another, “ says Stephanie Kolkka.
“I’ve worked for Stephanie for several years, and she has been a great mentor. I am very excited that she offered me a stake in this new business opportunity,” says Gina Nicolo.
Brick Monkey is celebrating its 4th anniversary and the grand opening of Brick Monkey Squared on Monday, October 14. The celebration begins at 5pm at Brick Monkey. There will be a ribbon cutting at Brick Monkey Squared at 6pm.
