In celebration of Black History Month, PREIT is proud to partner with our tenant, Curate Noir, which features all Black and Brown-Owned businesses at their Moorestown Mall location. Each of our properties will run social media giveaways of gift boxes featuring a selection of Curate Noir’s vendors to cultivate support and raise awareness for these emerging businesses.
What started in Nika and Alban Corbett’s living room as The Black Owned Business Box, a subscription box that shipped 4-6 Black-Owned business products to subscribers every month, has now grown into a place where you can shop from over 60+ different brands. Since opening their doors, they have hosted multiple expos with 100+ vendors, two of which were inaugural Black-Owned Business Expos in recognition of Black Business Awareness Month. Curate Noir continues to support small businesses as they grow. You can visit them in person at Moorestown Mall!
Get to know the brands and products included in the curated boxes below.

|Out of a need for a creative outlet, while working in banking, soapmaking became a fun way to make something we use every day in awesome scents, colors, and shapes. After crafting the first few batches of soap it was LaShonda Tyree’s mother’s request after using the soaps to make her more because the soap didn’t irritate her skin after bathing. Soap became the creative medium in which Nyah was started.
Product Included: Body Lotion

|Rebecca was inspired by a conversation with her childhood friend about skincare and how exfoliation could help to rejuvenate the skin and aid in fading dark spots. After that conversation, Rebecca began to extensively research and experiment with natural ingredients to improve her skin and the results were amazing. She knew that she had to share these products with others who may be experiencing the same.
In August 2011, she began selling her body scrubs to close family and friends and the feedback was excellent! In April 2012, her products were featured in the gift bags of the Black Women In Entertainment Law (BWEL.org) Scholarship Gala that paid tribute to and honored BET Networks CEO, Debra Lee.
Product Included: Body Scrub
|Based in Maryland, minutes from the District of Columbia, LeneNicole. Candle Co. is a Black woman-owned small business focused on creating safe, high-quality candles that embrace the collective of all things manifested, but not spoken, by our mind, body, and soul. That mantra inspires our motto: candles that express your mind + mood. Founder Darlene created LeneNicole. Candle Co. after realizing the impact of spending endless amounts on big-box brands + high-end candles that weren’t relatable or reflective of a true feeling or mood, did not exude physical distinctiveness or promote a safe and non-toxic burn.
LeneNicole. Candle Co. puts a dynamic twist on luxury in a jar. Our unique, one-of-a-kind Signature and Exclusive mood. Collections expand on how we all occasionally feel and think, hence our mood.
Product Included: Room Spray
|Omorose Natural Products started when founder and CEO, Katrisha Tinsley, noticed just how badly she had damaged her hair. Working as a Registered Cardiovascular Invasive Specialist, Katrisha was teased daily for how her hair fit under the medical bonnet. As a result, she spent the next two years regularly straightening her hair, leaving it with excessive heat damage and her feeling less than beautiful.
Katrisha searched for high-quality natural hair products that would help restore the much-needed moisture, strength, and shine to her hair but found no such products. She began to research and experiment with various natural ingredients to make her own hair products until she created a combination that worked wonders and she began to see an immediate difference in the overall health of her hair. Now that her natural curls were coming back to life, she began to feel much more beautiful and confident. Wanting other women to share in this newfound joy and reap the benefits of using her products, Katrisha became inspired and thus the Omorose Natural Products Hair Care line was born.
Product Included: Marshmallow & Mango Butter Curly Creme Leave-In Moisturizer
