Two new sister stores are coming to the developing Historic West Fourth District in downtown Cincinnati: Koko, a sustainable shop, and Forage, an “interior plant shop and community for plant lovers.”

Helmed by best friends Adria Hall and Jamie Fairman (Hall is the co-owner of Koko and the Brand Experience Director at Forage, and Fairman is the co-owner of Koko and owner of Forage), this will be the duo’s fourth Forage location — they have stores in Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky and Denver, Colorado — and their second full Koko shop and refillery; the flagship storefront is in Columbus, with Koko hubs in all existing Forage locations.

For more information on the forthcoming Koko and Forage shops, visit their websites at and or Instagram at @kokotheshop and @forageplants.
