The members of Artisan, downtown Trail’s craft co-operative, would like to thank the citizens of Trail and surrounding area for their support over the last 30 years. It has been greatly appreciated. However, on Jan 31, 2019, we will be closing our doors forever.
Artisan was originally created in 1988 by Trail’s Economic Action Development Committee as an outlet for local craftspeople to sell their products. Doors were opened in October of 1988 in Waneta Plaza. The shop later moved to Eldorado Street in downtown Trail, and finally to its present location on Spokane Street.
We close with mixed emotions, but feel that Artisan has served its purpose. Markets, fairs, and other retail outlets now provide opportunities for locally produced items, and the downtown retail environment has significantly changed.
We will miss our loyal customers and thank you for a wonderful 30 years.
