MEQUON — A new retail concept titled Terrain that will offer a European-style market feel has been announced for Mequon’s Spur 16 development.

Wisconsin entrepreneurs Vicki Kunz of La Tulipe and Meg Hopkins of Elements East want to create a destination in Mequon that offers fresh flowers, floral arrangements and one-of-a-kind gifts sourced from around the world.

“We couldn’t be more excited to announce this new partnership,” Hopkins said in a statement. “Terrain will be Wisconsin’s premier source for exquisite flowers and unique gifts. Our offerings will be both out of this world and down-to-earth.”

Terrain will join several other already announced tenants for Spur 16: Café Corazon, Bavette La Boucherie, Screaming Tuna and Anodyne Coffee Roasters. Terrain is the only retail tenant and the only tenant concept created especially for Mequon Public Market, 6300 W. Mequon Road.

“Shaffer Development spurred the idea of Meg and I coming together to create Terrain,” Kunz said. “They were looking to add flowers and interesting, eclectic small gifts to the Mequon Public Market, and approached us individually about coming together with a wholly new retail concept for the development. Given the quality and outstanding reputations of the other tenants and the high quality and vision of the entire project, we both said an enthusiastic, ‘Yes!’” Terrain will also offer floral arrangement designing and delivery; “Grab and go” vased floral arrangements and bucket bouquets; special occasion flowers, such as for prom, homecoming, Mother’s Day, weddings; floral subscriptions; potted houseplants and flowering plants; candles; table top décor; cards; and jewelry.

La Tulipe currently has its floral studio in Cedarburg and will continue to operate out of that location for its high-end weddings, private home installations and corporate clients. Elements East, a fine furnishings and gifts boutique, will continue to operate at 191 E. Broadway in Milwaukee’s Third Ward.
