Welcome! Some of you may be here because you know The Find from its Indiana days. Some of you hopefully found us during our first summer in 2022 and are on your way to being loyal customers. Some of you may be brand new to us. Regardless of how you found The Find North, I want to do an introduction of me and my retail biz.
The Find North is the product of the continued evolution of the many retail
establishments I’ve had through the years. Most recently, The Find in Fort Wayne, Indiana was my stomping grounds and incubator for ideas about retail and supporting community. Retail is hard work my friends. It is not for the faint of heart and it’s much more than just having fun shopping! What keeps me coming back to it year after year is the fluidity, and the ability to be creative inside a space. I feel that with The Find North I’ve finally honed what is important to me inside that space and am excited to start our second year in northern Michigan.
What I hope to do with these stores is manyfold: to be part of a larger and vibrant business community, support local artists and makers by offering their items for sale whether on the floor or via pop ups, provide space for workshops and other gatherings, and continue to host our “give back” days where we donate 10% of sales to local nonprofits. All of this augments our day to day mission of carrying high quality, curated and stylish staples for all.
I’ve been so fortunate to have an amazing team to support me in this endeavor. They are the grease in the gears and I could not do it without them. While you won’t find me personally on the floor of the stores very often, you’ll always be in great hands with my staff. They’re the absolute best people and they inspire me every day. They’re ready and waiting to welcome you into The Find North to help you find your next favorite thing!
