1. About Jane
I had spent many years in retail, so when the opportunity to open a store in Park City developed; I jumped at the opportunity. I was living in Las Vegas at the time, and Park City was a dream place to call home; not to mention I had always wanted to open my own store. In 1985, La Niche became a reality. I moved to Park City and have lived in here ever since. I love it!
2.About La Niche Gourmet & Gifts
La Niche began as a traditional kitchen store and has evolved into a small piece of European charm, filled with linens, books, dishes and home accessories. A trip to France last year brought more unique items to the store. As an additional treat, we have a full espresso and gelato bar. We are repeatedly told it is the best coffee on the street and our gelato is truly authentic and delicious.
