Authored By Chloé Morrison

Although many locals were out of town for Memorial Day, owners of The River Street Makery said the weekend brought a steady flow of customers to their three-day grand opening celebration. 

The Makery is the new 4,500-square-foot space for Pure Sodaworks and Everyday Eclectic

“Our approach to all of our products for both companies is the same, so it made perfect sense to move into one combined home in Coolidge Park,” Tiffany Rogers, founder and co-owner of Everyday Eclectic and Pure Sodaworks, said in a prepared statement. “We use only the best of what nature has to offer in everything we develop, and our new space gives us the chance to share our creations with anyone visiting North Chattanooga.”

Shawn Clouse, Matt Rogers and Tiffany Rogers co-founded Pure Sodaworks in 2011.

The new location features retail frontage for both companies, production space for Everyday Eclectic’s specialty body and home treats, and has kitchens where Pure Sodaworks owners make their natural soda.

They produce small-batch natural sodas made with organic herbs, spices and produce. Their seasonal flavors are often developed using locally sourced ingredients, further contributing to the vitality of Chattanooga’s economy, the co-founders said.

Other flavors include strawberry jalapeño, apple pie, hibiscus lemon, root beer #4, honey lime, orange basil, lavender mint and ginger ale. 

The Rogerses founded Everyday Eclectic in 2007. The store offers original hand-poured soy candles, handcrafted soaps and other artisan products.

Their products can be found at their new storefront, area retail locations and online at

Collegedale resident Lisa Kuhlman said she loves Everyday Eclectic’s soy wooden wick candles and grapefruit body lotion.

“Of course their honey lime soda is out of this world, too,” she also said.
