    Sara Moore of Ju-Ju Monkey, RDIA board member representing retailers, has just opened a brick & mortar store. The following article about her store appeared in her local newspaper. 

    "Ju-Ju Monkey, a natural parenting store selling environmentally friendly and sustainable products for children and parents, is set to open this week (by Friday) at 4755 Tilghman St. (in the Kmart shopping center) in South Whitehall Township.

    "Owner Sara Moore of Schnecksville had been operating the business online and out of a showroom in her home since 2010. The idea for the company arose from a desire to learn more about cloth diapering for her now 5-year-old son, Collin. (Ju-Ju Monkey was his nickname as a baby.)"
