San Tan Leads Member Opens New Store in Casa Grande


LaDonna Ford has been a member of San Tan Leads for many years.  Her company, Arizona Native Lotions and Soaps held the organic lotions and soaps category in San Tan Leads, a one person per industry San Tan Valley business networking group.  Working from her home, she sold her products online at https://arizonanativelotionsoap.com and had many retailers across Pinal and Maricopa Counties carrying her products as well.  Through it all, she had always hoped that one day she'd be able to open her own store.  In the beginning of 2020, her dream seemed within reach when she found a location that she thought would be perfect. Then the pandemic hit and it looked like her dream of opening her own shop was going to shut down before it got started.

Through the pandemic however, Ford never gave up.  She continued to promote her company each week virtually, at the San Tan Leads meeting.  She upgraded her website to allow for an easier checkout process that included online ordering, delivery and curbside pickup options.  She also kept working with the landlord of the original space she had found and the City of Casa Grande.  

Ford opened her doors in mid-September with a soft opening and has scheduled her Grand Opening for this Saturday, October 3, 2020 at 10 a.m.  The event for the new boutique includes shopping, treats, door prizes and some fun activities.

Not only selling her own Arizona Native Lotions and Soaps products, Ford has brought together fifteen other vendors to provide an array of products made locally in Pinal County. Hand crafted and unique items include but are not limited to lotions, soaps, bows, teddy bears, souvenirs, loose leaf teas, herbal salves, quilts, aprons, masks, wreathes, jewelry, memory boxes, crocheted critters, fantastic baked goods, smore kits, candied apple kits, healthy dog treats, handcrafted ballpoint pens, wooden bowls, laser etched journals and ornaments. With the holidays coming up you are sure to find something for that special someone, while helping more than a dozen local small businesses provide for their families.  The boutique known as Arizona Native Lotions and Soaps with Friends is located at 108 W 2nd Street, Casa Grande, AZ 85122.

Arizona Native Lotions and Soaps with Friends is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. They are closed Sundays and Mondays.  Local vendors who would like to join the waiting list can visit the store for an application.
