Good Company: Patina

With the holidays just around the corner, it’s nice to have those stand-by gifts. You know something to give just in case you get an unexpected package. There’s one store perfect for those very situations. It’s a staple here in communities all over the metro and as Twin Cities Live reporter Kelli Hanson shows us in this Good Company, Patina is celebrating a huge milestone this year.

25-years ago two young entrepreneurs decided to take a big leap. They were both working for different retailers but wanted their own careers. So in the Fall of 1993, Christine Ward and Rick Haase opened Patina – a store they hoped would help people escape.

Patina now has 8 locations, expanding to the suburbs in 2011.
