Dolly Parton opens first retail store in Nashville March 12

She’s an icon, whether it’s for her singing, her movies, or her… curves. And now country music queen Dolly Parton has opened her first-ever retail store in Nashville, Dolly Parton’s Trinkets & Treasures, and plans to be on hand and in person for the official grand opening and pink ribbon cutting on Friday, March 12.

“When I was growing up in the backwoods of the Smoky Mountains, any trinket was a treasure to me,” says the vivacious singer, songwriter, author and entrepreneur. “The mail order catalog was my wish book. I wished I could have everything I saw. Those childhood memories inspired my new Trinkets and Treasures store. Come on in and wish and dream…and I will make them come true.”

Dolly Parton’s Trinkets and Treasures is located in historic downtown Nashville on 2nd avenue. The 1,000 square foot space is a colorful reflection of the singer’s eccentric “Coat of Many Colors” taste and is filled with the singer’s music and videos. The store offers a mix of Dolly-centric items for fans of all ages including a music section stocked with Dolly Records’ releases–including the November 2009 two-disc DVD/CD set “Dolly: Live from London” –and a listening post to preview the tunes, t-shirts, hats and a collection of children and tween items.

For the store, Dolly has also created fun items like a “Burpin’ 9-5” baby bib and special limited-edition “Coat of Many Colors” customized guitars, hand-painted and embossed with rhinestones at her Nashville studio.

Dolly Parton’s Trinkets & Treasures is located at 126 2nd Ave North, Nashville, TN (next door to Wild Horse Saloon) and store hours are 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. Sunday through Friday, and Saturday from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. This marks the first retail store for the internationally renowned superstar who launched her own Dolly Records in 2007 with her Backwoods Barbie CD.
