West Elm to Promote Local Businesses with New Workshops


Brooklyn, N.Y.-based home furnishings retailer West Elm has announced plans to roll out workshops in five cities aimed at connecting shoppers with other local businesses. According to USA Today, these workshops will send participants on visits to engage with local artists or entrepreneurs who will teach shoppers skills that include welding and dyeing fabric. The project reflects the company’s effort to better serve as a good neighbor to smaller, community-based businesses.

Beginning April 2, the workshops will be available through May 27 in Brooklyn as well as Austin, Texas; Charleston, S.C.; Detroit; and Savannah, Ga. Ranging in price from $130 to $250, the workshops are expected to eventually expand to other cities.
