Featuring over 100 brands and a wide array of merchandise, the store is the first of its kind for the area. Deloran Muransky, the store’s owner, is thrilled to finally see ivory & birch come to life.
“I’ve been dreaming of opening a store since I was a little girl. My all-time favorite toy was a cash register and I changed my outfits six-seven times a day when I was four.” Muransky, a Poland Seminary High School and Washington University in St. Louis alumni, moved back to the area in May to work on ivory & birch full time. She spent close to five years working for Kohl’s department stores, taking on roles in buying, planning, merchandising and product development before decided to venture out on her own.

She also described the exceptional customer service ivory & birch hopes to be known for: “No matter how prevalent online shopping becomes in our lives, there is still something to be said for the in-store experience. My staff and I want to be known for personal, genuine and meaningful customer relationships.”
