Merrow Knits has announced it will open a new boutique-style store across the street from Portugalia Marketplace in Fall River.

Merrow CEO Charlie Merrow told Fun 107 what to expect.

"The store will be called Merrow Station, featuring fine knitwear, a yoga studio and a canteen for the community and all employees."

Construction is happening right now at the site of the future store. Merrow expects the retail location to open sometime in October. Here are a couple of pictures that show the progress of the project, and the direction in which it is going.

Merrow expects the store to be modeled after the type of retail establishment that might be located on Thames Street in Newport or Newbury Street in Boston.

"What we're most proud of is the fact that these sweaters are designed, manufactured and distributed right here in Fall River," he said. "The skillset to do these things is not available just anywhere. We are lucky to have the talent that we do here on the SouthCoast for this remarkable achievement."

To kick off the celebration, the store is giving away free $50 gift cards to anyone who wants one. People can visit, enter their name and email address, and Merrow will email a $50 credit to be used at Merrow Station when the store opens next month. No word on how long that offer will last.

There is also an instant Fun 107 discount that can be taken advantage of before the store opens. Use the promo code "fun" at checkout to receive 25% off your entire order, which includes free shipping. That offer is also for a limited time.
