For brother-and-sister team Nicholas Giancola and Erica (Giancola) Lewis, the journey of SPRUCE Home + Gift began organically.
After working in various corporate job settings, Nicholas was ready for something new. He moved back to his hometown in Northeast Ohio with the entrepreneur spirit and a dream of creating something different and unique. At the same time, Erica had just become a new mother and was looking for a career that would allow her the flexibility to care for her children while still using her skills and talents.
The pair envisioned opening a beautifully designed shop where people could stroll, cup of coffee in hand, and browse through unique merchandise for their home. And so, armed with grit, enthusiasm and ingenuity, Nicholas and Erica created Spruce Home + Gift.
