Chris Colean is the owner of the Colorado Co-op store at 315 N. Tejon St.
The Co-op is a woman’s apparel store that specializes in clothing, jewelry and other accessories.
Colean opened her store about 17 years ago, after traveling the world as a creative director for Hong Kong-based apparel store G-2000. She worked in Singapore, Barcelona, Amsterdam, New York City, Paris and several other worldwide cities before settling in her native state of Colorado.
She said running a clothing store is not all glitz and glamour; one must know the business end of being an entrepreneur in order to survive.
“There is a bigger portion of money management involved than there is buying clothing,” she said.
