COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) – Buff City Soap is set to open its doors Thursday in the Jones Crossing development in College Station. The franchise brings a full-functioning soap Makery and plant-based soap and body products to the B/CS area.
The business will officially open at 10 a.m. Thursday, and the first 50 people to visit the store will receive soap for a year, according to Buff City Soap.
Billy Perkins, the franchise owner and regional general manager, chose to bring the store to College Station because of his ties to Texas A&M University.
“As a Texas A&M University graduate I am thrilled to unveil Buff City Soap to local Aggies who are going to fall in love with the brand,” said Perkins.
Buff City Soap prides itself on various soap products that are plant-based, cruelty-free, free of animal fats and don’t include harsh chemicals, according to the store.
The business “offers more than 30 unique and customizable scents across dozens of handcrafted soap products; including its famous soap bars, bath bombs, foaming hand soap and even laundry soap,” according to Buff City Soap.
Each location also has “local exclusives,” so, at the College Station store, there are special soaps like “Clean to the Corps,” “Bonfire,” “Ring Dance” and more.
Every product that customers see in the store is hand-made and created on-site by local artisans at the in-store Makery. Guests will even get to see soaps and other products made as they shop.
Another element to the store beyond the products is the experience factor.
“We have soap-making parties and bath bomb-making parties, so it’s really fun for the kids and even the adults,” said Heather Harrison, Buff City Soap Soap Maker.” They can come in and make their own little scents, their own bath bombs. It will basically be fun for the whole family.”
Once open, Buff City Soap will operate Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
It is located at 11667 FM 2154, Suite 600 in College Station. The store is near I Heart Mac & Cheese and the Chick-fil-a.
