Cotopaxi – outdoor gear and apparel brand and Benefit Corporation – has opened one new story and plans to open another in December. The opened store is in San Francisco, and the December opening will be in Denver. This will give the company a roster of seven store locations.
Embodying Cotopaxi’s Gear For Good mission, the new stores will have their own “Community Grantee” area where people visiting can learn about local nonprofit organizations. Each store will also donate $5,000 to a local impact driven organization upon opening; Denver’s Larimer Square store partnered with the Denver chapter of the International Rescue Committee, a longtime Cotopaxi partner, to help recently arrived refugee women connect with their new Colorado community. San Francisco’s Hayes Valley location has partnered with Tipping Point Community to provide a grant focused on fighting poverty. Tipping Point supports nonprofits working on early childhood, education, housing and employment to lift communities and fight poverty in the Bay Area.
“We’re very excited about expanding Cotopaxi’s retail presence and couldn’t be more excited to open our first California store in such an iconic city and neighborhood,” said Landon John, Cotopaxi’s Director of Retail. “We’re looking forward to meeting Cotopaxi fans, our neighbors and doing good in the Hayes Valley community of San Francisco.”
San Francisco’s store is located at 549 Hayes Street, San Francisco, CA, 94102.
Denver’s store will be located at 1410 Larimer Street, Denver CO 80202.
