J&I have been discussing the things we will miss about living in Troy - and one thing that comes up over and over is the wonderful community of businesses and their owners who we interact with on a daily basis. As we discussed it more and more in detail, we noticed one reoccurring thing: female owners & operators.
We looked out our window and panned down the street. Market Block Books: Female owned. Anchor no 5: Female owned. Aurora's Boutique: Female owned. Broken Mold Studio: Female owned. Broccoli's: Female owned. Artcentric: Female owned. Copper Fox: Female owned. Psychedelicatessen: Female owned. T&J Soap: Female owned. Annick Designs: Female owned.
So...I looked a little more into it.
(Note: While we do know several of the business owners listed below, google definitely helped me out a lot compiling this information and I can only assume that it is fairly accurate)
Female Owned Businesses in Troy, NY:
