Coldwater Creek - An Idaho original
Coldwater Creek was founded in 1984 in Sandpoint, Idaho by Dennis and Ann Pence. The company started out as a catalog sales company offering a four color catalog containing clothing, jewelry and gifts. Through this medium of sales, the company found out that most of its customers were middle class females. By 1991, the company was growing fast and had revenues of $11 million. In 1995, the company opened its first retail store, and started opening others in the surrounding states of Idaho. Today, Coldwater Creek operates 349 stores across the United States, plus an additional 38 outlet stores offering discounted and last season's clothing. The company employs around 6,600 team members and in 2012 had a net revenue of $742.4 million.
