There's something magical about New England - with its seaside villages, charming town squares, and cozy mountain hideaways, it's a place that captures the imagination and stirs the soul. And now, Dot & Dash is proud to be a part of this enchanting landscape, as we launch an exciting new initiative to expand into New England through a partnership with Brian & Company.
At Dot & Dash, we believe that shopping should be an experience - a chance to explore new places, discover unique treasures, and connect with the people and communities around us. And that's why we're thrilled to be teaming up with Brian & Company, a sales and marketing firm with a long history of creating successful partnerships between brands and their retail partners. With deep relationships across the six New England states and a keen understanding of what makes this region so special, Brian & Company is the perfect partner to help us bring the Dot & Dash experience to this vibrant and diverse market.
For our founder and president Karen Panos, the move to enter New England is more than just a business decision - it's a personal one. "Having lived in Boston for five years, I've always been drawn to the beauty and charm of New England, with its quaint coastal towns and picturesque countryside," Karen shared. "These types of locations are my absolute favorites for gift shopping, and our product line thrives in these environments. But I also know that breaking into and servicing these tight-knit communities can be a challenge. That's why I'm so excited to have met Brian Hickman at the Atlanta Gift Market last summer - he immediately understood our vision for Dot & Dash, why it works and where it fits. And together we've built a plan for thoughtful growth that ensures we partner with retailers dedicated to helping their clients find and create the most thoughtful and personal gifts with Dot & Dash."
The launch of Dot & Dash in New England began earlier this month at the Cape Cod & Islands Gift show in Falmouth, Massachusetts - and the response has been incredible. We've already welcomed 10 new stores to the Dot & Dash community, and we can't wait to see what the future holds as we continue to grow and expand across the region.
If any of our existing stores have friends with a shop in New England you think would do well with Dot & Dash, please send them our way here. We’re now in a great position to help them grow their business in 2023!
