Sparks-based McCormick and Co. Inc. is venturing into retail, launching its first store this summer in the Light Street Pavilion at Harborplace.
The “McCormick World of Flavors” 3,800-plus square foot-center will showcase the company’s products as well as hold cooking demonstrations by McCormick’s chefs and celebrity chefs using the firm’s products. There will be a gift shop and interactive family activities, such as finding your personal flavor profile and tracking the origin of spices.
“What better way to communicate what we do than to allow visitors to experience it personally,” Alan Wilson, president, chairman and CEO of McCormick, said in a news release.
The addition of McCormick to Harborplace will be a flashback for many. The company’s legendary McCormick Plant and Headquarters stood just steps away at 414 Light Street from 1920 to 1989.
