How it all got started..
In May of 2017, still fresh from the blow of the 2016 election, the fully-female team at Bulletin asked, “what would a store look and feel like if it were built explicitly for women, by women?”
So we set out to launch a retail experience from scratch, one that celebrates women with every inch of merchandising, design, product selection and programming. Each item we sell is dreamed up by a female entrepreneur. We spend every day helping female-led retail brands improve and grow by providing shelf space, sales data and marketing exposure that for many, was once out of reach. Every event we throw is meant to inspire activism and bring our customers together. We don’t just sell shit. We work with partners like Planned Parenthood, Dress for Success and #HappyPeriod to host workshops, trainings, and other social justice programming. Why? Because a store can be so much more.
~ Meet Ali and Alana ~
Ali Kriegsman (Co-Founder & COO) & Alana Branston (Co-Founder & CEO) met while working at a software startup in New York City. Ali loved to write, and Alana, an Instagram and Etsy huntress, loved discovering and supporting indie brands. Eager for a creative outlet, the two started Bulletin 1.0, a digital magazine where readers could learn about cool, underground brands and shop their work throughout the story. After three years of hustle and many pivots, Alana and Ali turned a small, digital side project into a venture-backed, Y Combinator startup with three physical retail stores in New York City.

Bulletin believes that the future of retail is dynamic, social, and community-driven. So we host events regularly across every store. Whether it Planned Parenthood training sessions, reproductive health panels or fireside chats with activists on the rise, our events aim to engage and connect our growing community of customers. Our events are free and easy to get to. We're all about inclusivity, here. Our education isn't exclusive and our doors are always open.
