Nearly two years after opening its doors in downtown Pittsburg, the student-run Krimson Kultuur store is proving to be a successful business venture and a training ground for future business leaders.
Suzanne Hurt, adviser for Pittsburg State’s Enactus group, said the store is enjoying substantial growth over its first year in business. The store, located at 508 N. Broadway, sells items created by local and international artists.
“Our sales are up more than 30 percent over this time last year,” Hurt said. “Our students have done a remarkable job of bringing in quality items from a variety of local and global artists. The community has really supported us, and we’re quite pleased with how things are going.”
