The owner, who grew up in Marblehead, and Swaffield, raised in Wolfboro, N.H., named the business after their respective dogs, Gus and Ruby. Their first store opened in New Hampshire in 2009; the Maine location launched in August of 2017; and a third will soon open at 99 Charles St., although Finigan is reticent to say exactly when.
The owners will be opening their third store in Beacon Hill, and are planning to open by the end of this month.
On Charles Street, Gus & Ruby will occupy an approximately 1,000 square-foot storefront, specializing in creating unique, one-of-a-kind invitations to weddings and other special events; birth announcements; and customized letterheads.
