Commercial real estate group Charleston Commercial has secured two new retailers for 316 King St., the former home of 316 Men and Lush Cosmetics.

Lifestyle brand Salt Life is expected to open later this month in 316 Men’s former space. The Salt Life brand was created in 2003 and has retail locations across Florida, California and Georgia.

Salt Life President Jeff Stillwell said in a news release that he is “thrilled” to be in downtown Charleston.

“Charleston’s King Street is a retail and cultural hub of this historic city, and we feel that our popularity with the district residents is an obvious addition to our growing brick-and-mortar portfolio,” Stillwell said.

The second retailer is OMG Candy Store, a candy boutique that will offer a variety of sweets. The shop is expected to open April 1.

Founder and CEO Orit Deverell said in the release that he has been working to open the store for the past few years.

“We are ready to open our doors on King Street and give the locals and tourists an experience they will not forget,” he said.

Charleston Commercial is led by President C. Kendrick and Managing Director Joshua Schaap. Last year, Kendrick and Schaap represented luxury cooler brand Yeti in leasing a retail location at 360 King St.

“Downtown Charleston, especially King Street, is an incredibly attractive spot for retailers right now,” Schaap said in the release. “Our expertise on King Street allows us to attract both local and regional brands eager to make a home in Charleston and serve both locals and visitors.”
