Main Street Gallery: Six Businesses

Julie McClellan of Main Street Gallery and Gifts. Julie and son, Josh, are the owners.

Julie McClellan joined forces with her son Josh McClellan in 2000 to open a retail shop in Fort Scott.

The shop has moved from 8 N. Main to National Avenue across from the post office then to 24 N. Main. It was at this location they renamed the shop from Spice of Life to Main Street Gallery and Gifts.

“After 10 years at this location, we outgrew the space and bought the old J.C.Penney building at 23 S. Main,” Julie said.

Through the years they added more offerings for their customers.

Today they have gifts, home decor, custom and antique furniture, gluten-free products, a homebrew supply shop, herbs, essential oils and supplements in addition to an upholstery shop, picture frame and mat shop and additionally they rent out space to the Spoiled Brat Salon next door at 19 S. Main.

“Josh’s wife, Rechelle, and my husband, Gene, and granddaughter Shelby help out in this multifaceted business,” Julie said.
