Retail co-ops are a booming trend in retail presentation which continues to try and re-imagine itself during what can be considered a slightly difficult retail market. Co-ops offer an alternative for small and mid level design and fashion houses who are looking for storefronts to display their wears but may not be ready to dive into their own digs. The co-op offers a shared space (usually temp) to test those waters and align themselves with like minded designs and fashion. If anything its a growing trend that we’re happy to see and would love to see more of globally. New York Magazine takes a look at the co-op scene with their review of six co-ops in the NYC and Brooklyn. A nice primer for those looking for new retail stomping grounds.
