Martha Soles built The Silver Box LLC from a home business started in 2001 to its current location at 6630 Main Street, Gloucester, specializing in ladies apparel, accessories, jewelry, shoes, children’s clothing and men’s shirts.
Growing up in Gloucester, Soles developed deep roots in retail business, as assistant manager of a department store and 29 years as a banker.
