St. James will soon be the home to a new, unique business – Mancaves.
“Mancaves is going to be a store that provides man caves for people as well as build man caves for people … [with] anything really cool that has to do with your home,” said owner Dan Silberman.
Silberman said virtually anything could go in a man cave – a location dedicated to the wants of the man of the household where they could socialize and hang out with friends – from barbecue equipment to pool tables, home theatre equipment and more.
