Savvy was founded by Lisa Boucher to provide shoppers as well as local artists with a venue
where creativity is celebrated, emerging artists are discovered and everyone leaves with a
treasure or a treasured memory.
Savvy On First our downtown location is proud to be located in the Historic Arcade Theatre
building, built in 1915 by the Heitman brothers, Harvie and Gilmer. The central entry of the
building under the Arcade Marquee offers comfortable covered passage from Bay to First
Streets. This landmark building has attracted patrons of theatre and the arts for many years
including Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. This building is a perfect fit for Savvy On First with
many of the artisans inside the gallery weaving heirlooms from the past into their modern works.
Savvy's newest location is located just off Historic McGregor Boulevard Corridor.
Savvy is poised to promote and encourage “buying local,” noting that a strong local economy is
an engine for community stability. Downtown Fort Myers, Florida has so much to offer including
the Edison & Ford Winter Estates, art galleries, museums, coffee shops, restaurants, bead shops,
clothing boutiques, theaters, wineries, pubs, convention and events center, marina and so much
more. It is our goal to make sure when you step inside our doors, you experience a new kind of
shopping atmosphere and leave feeling with a smile on your face.
