McCormick’s one and only retail store opened today in the Light Street Pavilion at the Inner Harbor. When I first heard of the concept I was skeptical. “How much nutmeg can they sell?” I thought. But I was wrong. The store is a pleasure as an attraction and a practical resource for those who love to cook.
Displays for assorted spices abound. There’s one section just for baking…
and another one just for grilling…
and still another for general cooking.
Of course, there’s a display for all things Old Bay, including T-shirts and hats…
and flip flops.
There are rubs and sauces…
and an entire wall of jellies and relishes and ethnic spices.
There is a full kitchen in the store (too many people crowded it to get a good picture), where cooks will give demonstrations. There is an exclusive McCormick World of Flavors product line only available in the store.
Someone had the foresight to include interactive games so the kids won’t get bored while mom and dad shop.
McCormick World of Flavors is on the first floor of the Light Street Pavilion near Urban Outfitters and H&M. Fun fact: The store is just steps away from the site of the McCormick Plant and Headquarters that stood at 414 Light Street for nearly 70 years.
Store hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 – 9 and Sunday 11 – 7.
