A message from our Executive Director Raine Mckay

Welcome to the team!

Welcome to three new team members – Chantelle will be taking over for Marissa as weekend shop assistant; Elly is a SFU intern who will be working on our Craft, Heritage and Me program and finally Sally, our CHRC intern.

Sally has a 7 month paid internship with CCBC to work on launching the Craft Cart program. She will also be working with Emma to develop and implement strategies to create more opportunities for our members to sell their work while boosting sales in the shop.

As many our of members that sell in the Granville Island shop know – our summer sales are down about 25%. We are not sure why but are currently assessing all of the variables that could have had such a negative impact – noting what we have no control over and building solid strategies for those variables we can readily address. We will keep you posted!
