TOP RETAILER/GUILD OR CO-OP
Boulder Arts & Crafts
Lisa Glickman McDonough, director of public relations and advertising
How does being a co-op make you stronger?
Using a co-operative business model makes us stronger for a couple of reasons: many more heads on each topic fosters creative problem solving, and full discussions bring most contentious issues to a consensus. As the economy challenges us, we have also been able to change the commissions paid to member artists based on what the business needs.
What are your plans for the future?
Keep on doin’ what we’ve been doin’! We are proud to have been a local business in vibrant downtown Boulder for 40 years and hope that as some of us start to retire, our younger members will take the business forward for another 40 years.
