The Temple of Hope, 903 Central Ave., former home of the Sassy Chic Boutique, will feature religious novelties and items from around the world, according to Mayra Campbell, who co-owns the business with her husband, Frankie Selto.
“We’re going to have merchandise with spiritual meaning,” explained Mayra Campbell’s daughter-in-law, Laurita Campbell, who will also be working at the new shop.
“Spiritual books, music, paintings … anything that can be used for some kind of spiritual relic or meditation,” Laurita Campbell said. “You’re going to be able to find all different kinds of spiritual things.”
The family-owned business recently moved into Tracy after stints in Livermore and Berkeley. Mayra Campbell said she and her husband hope to open their doors in time for the Tracy Dry Bean Festival on Saturday, Sept. 8.
In addition to novelties and accessories, Mayra Campbell said she and her husband also plan to host monthly classes on topics that include the Japanese form of meditation, Makari, as well as mystic crystals.
Laurita Campbell said it’s part of an effort to cater to a wide range of spiritual beliefs.
“Covering pretty much every religion there is, especially the major ones with imports from out of the country, including Bali, Indonesia and Nepal,” she said. “Can’t classify one thing for one person — everybody has their preference, and we like to give them options.”
The Temple of Hope will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, and will be open Sundays and extended hours by appointment.
