SHOP LOCAL - Mackenzie & West
WHAT DO YOU GET when two fun-loving Texas transplants relocate to Colorado Springs with 50 years of combined experience in retail? Answer – A great new shopping venue in Old Colorado City.
I have such respect for the courage and gumption required to launch a new business. My first impression when walking into Mackenzie & WEST in Old Colorado City was the wonderful assortment of distinct, original, quality clothing, and unique gifts. I knew immediately, I had found my new “go-to” store. In my first 5 minutes, other shoppers came through and complimented the warmth and hospitality of the store and the owners.
Co-Founders Laura and Glynis are a hilarious duo. They are certainly outgoing and boy do they know their store and products. Their personalities and charm instantly draw you in. We laughed about their whirlwind adventure, traveling to shows all over the country, to prepare their unique offerings of clothing, accessories, jewelry, and gifts.
“Mackenzie and West are family names. We wanted to build our legacy into our small business adventure,” says Laura.
“We wanted a thoughtful and purposeful place to go every day,” the ladies say. “Retirement is overrated,” they both chime in boldly!
“Our core values are family, friends, and community. We believe in kindness towards people and providing a genuinely happy place to shop,” says Glynis.
