COLORADO – As children grow up and start to shop at consignment vendors, they’re always looking for the latest and greatest products and services.
But if you’re looking for an old-fashioned, old-school, local business, you might want to look into the craft department of a family-owned store like the C&O Family Consignment and Salvage.
C&O is a family business that has been operating for more than 50 years in the area of the Rocky Mountains, serving a diverse clientele that includes the University of Colorado, the Colorado State University and other universities.
C.R.I. is a Colorado-based, independent consignment and salvage store that is owned by the C & O Family Consignors.
The company’s mission is to provide an array of products, including vintage items and jewelry, to a wide range of families, ages, genders and social and economic backgrounds.
C&I is a community-owned and operated business.
Owner David C. Anderson said his family has owned the business since 1947, when he started working at C&P.
Anderson said he started selling items from his family’s vintage and collectible collection to C&Os customers in the early ’80s.
He said he sold to over 200 customers in Colorado alone.
When C&D opened in 1989, the family-run business was in its infancy.
But as the store expanded to sell more items, Anderson said customers grew increasingly interested in the items they were looking for.
C & O opened in a building on the west side of town in 1998.
Since then, Anderson says he has been able to attract and keep a wide variety of customers.
The business has expanded into other Colorado cities as well.
In 2016, Anderson opened the Colorado Springs branch.
The C&OS Denver branch is also in the process of opening its first store in Colorado Springs, with plans to expand to other cities.
C &O is one of the first consignment retailers in the state of Colorado.
C’s first consignments are made by hand in small batches and require the purchase of large quantities of supplies.
The consignment items are then sorted and packaged and shipped.
Calls to C &o Family Consignedes Colorado and C&OP were not returned.
C.RI. did not return phone calls.
Anderson, who lives in Denver, said he wants to help his family continue to provide customers with the best consignment options available.
“I would like to thank the C family for allowing us to operate as a family in this community,” he said.
“We will continue to keep offering this wonderful service to our customers.”
The C&OT Family Consortion & Salvage is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from 10:30 a.
