SunStruck opened in June 2022 and is owned by Kristin Struck Tenner. I was born in Plum Beach, RI and my family moved to Providence when I was a year old. My parents rented a house in the old McMillen Cottages (behind Twin Willows) every summer, so I was lucky enough to grow up on the "rocks side" of Bonnet Shores, aka Wesquage. My roots in Narragansett run deep - my first job was at McDonald's in Wakefield, summers were spent at Sand Hill Cove as a park aide and I graduated from URI.
Owning a business and settling in Narragansett was life changing after 20 years in "Corporate America", the last few years spent working in Manhattan. My vision is for SunStruck to be a bright
local spot where you can find that unique and perfect gift for any occasion, including splurging on yourself!. As much as possible, I buy New England made (preferably Rhode Island) and I strongly prefer to buy from women owned businesses.
Our inventory is constantly being updated and I am always looking for the next great gift for you to give! You can buy online at our website, but if you're local, you know we always keep a few goodies only for our in person shoppers.
The Name SunStruck
My grandparents, Helen and Robert Struck, called their Plum Beach, Rhode Island home "SunStruck". It’s a name that has long been associated with our family and I’m so proud it’s the name of my store and one that is becoming more well known in Narragansett!
My husband and my family are a huge help daily. Could not do it without them! ❤️
