“We are extremely excited to celebrate our one-year anniversary with our customers, we had no idea when we started this how we could have grown. We are very thankful that the Oxford Exchange has been well-received in the Tampa Bay area,” says Allison Adams, Director of Oxford Exchange.
Oxford Exchange regulars seem to get lost in the intoxicating décor that showcases classic elegance with comfort and contemporary flair. The multi-use venue is designed to fulfill a diverse range of needs, from coffee to conversation, through various sections, including the bookstore, shop, dining room, atrium with coffee and tea and the Commerce Club — a collaborative working space with individual stations and fully equipped private meeting rooms available to members.
The shop inspires open and civil conversations — the exploration of literature, the benefits of shared meals and drinks, and curated retail products, and it provides a home for business.
Since doors opened, Oxford Exchange has experienced tremendous growth, and a variety of guest from the business crowd in the morning grabbing coffee to go, Moms stopping by for brunch, and students in the evening looking for a nice place to study and some tea.
When asked about the possibility of expansion, Adams mentioned that O.E. Market on the corner of Grand Central Avenue and South Hyde Park Avenue they will offer take out and freshly made juice.
On Tuesday, Sept. 24, the Oxford Exchanged celebrated their 1-year anniversary by hosting the Extreme Room Makeover Giveaway of $5,000. Bridgette Horn won the grand prize, which will transform any room in her home into an inspired look created by the Oxford Exchange Design Team. Guest didn't have to be present in order to win. Horn was out to lunch with eight other women who had entered the contest, but only she could claim bragging rights!
