Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Eau Claire (WQOW) – Starting Saturday November 3, there will be a spot for women-owned businesses to sell their wares in downtown Eau Claire.

It’s all made possible by the Red Letter Grant, a regional program that helps women who want to start their own businesses, and Moeding Partners.

The shops will be in the former Mayo Clinic Building, off East Madison Street. It’ll host holiday pop-up shops for the next two months, featuring products from past Red Letter Grant winners. After the holidays, one of the future grant winners will have the option to rent this location for free for one year.

“This is trying to push women, and you can fulfill your dreams and do what you want right now, and so I think one of the greater hurdles is having to start up capital to do something like that, so we want to kind of take that piece away and offer networking, mentorship, I think it’s always important to turn around and support the community that supports you,” said Rebecca Cooke, Founder – Red Letter Grant.

The next group of grant winners will be announced on Tuesday.

 

Pop-up shop hours:
Wednesday-Saturday 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Sunday 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
325 E Madison Street
