In the early '80's Ann and Dennis Pence were thriving young advertising and marketing executives who dreamed of quitting New York City, starting a new life in nature, and opening a business that inspired people. They were instantly captivated by the majestic scenery of the great Northwest and decided to set up shop in Sandpoint, Idaho, home to the state's largest lake and biggest ski resort. In 1984 they launched Coldwater Creek as a catalog business with the promise of bringing customers "beautiful, unexpected, and extraordinary things". 30 years have passed since then and we make the same promise today.
THE (FIRST) TIME THE STARS ALIGNED PERFECTLY
Over the next 30 years the brand grew beyond catalog to include a website, more than 350 stores, and countless loyal customers. And for many of these years "the Creek" as it's affectionately known enjoyed status as the place for exciting fashion, great advice on how to wear it, and famously good personal service. Collections were thrilling. Service broke records for excellence. Our unique catalogs were much anticipated by customers and mimicked by the competition. And the brand and its customers became one and the same, sharing a passion for great wearable fashion as well as simple values like honesty, optimism, curiosity and community. This was a magical time in the brand's life when the Creek was at its very best. And we're dedicated to bringing it back.
