Peppercorn, a Boulder, CO-based independent gourmet kitchenware store, recently celebrated its 42nd year in business.
To mark the occasion, the retailer added a photo of its first owner, Doris Houghland, on its Facebook page. It also added the following comment, “Thank you for choosing to #ShopSmall and make #PeppercornBoulder part of your lives and traditions. And a big thank you to Doris for her vision, her drive, and for making Peppercorn what it is and has been for the last 42 years.”
Houghland opened the store in 1977 as a small store with a cooking school. Now, the store is more than 12,000 square feet and is located on the historic Pearl Street Mall.
