PITTSBURG, KS.--- The Pittsburg State University student business group, Enactus, has located a building for their new store. The building is located in downtown Pittsburg at 111 west 4th Street. The store will be run and managed by Pitt State students and will sell artistic goods from developing nations around the world.
A majority of the profits will go back to the people who made the items in those nations. The students and volunteers are now working to clean and decorate the store. It will be called Krimson Kultuur and they are expected to be open by the beginning of November.
"This semester is completely nonprofit. So, we're looking for any volunteers that want to not just get some good work experience, but also learn about other cultures and some basic business concepts. We're looking forward to having people work for us and we want some people that really want to be here," said Jake Yankovich, Enactus Member.
Community members who are interested in donating their time, efforts, or goods are encouraged to contact the university.
