Juices, in Theory
    Theory stores in East Hampton and Southampton have added organic juices to their offerings this summer. Partnering with Organic Avenue, a New York juice and vegan food provider, Theory’s South Fork retail locations will each have a stand-alone fridge with a variety of bottled juices, “booster shots” of juices like aloe, wheatgrass, and ginger, and even children’s juices.
    “It’s a mini retail store inside our retail store,” Julianna Simmons, a public relations manager for Theory, said over the phone earlier this month. The Organic Avenue pop-ups opened at the East Hampton and Southampton stores on Saturday. Organic Avenue will also provide “concierge” cleanse services, according to a release.
    In East Hampton, Theory is at 46 Newtown Lane. The Southampton store is at 98-100 Main Street. Both are open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
