Membership FAQ

What do we offer?

Alakoko is a Rice Street Business Association non-profit affiliate store based on the idea of shared community space. Alakoko is a membership based store that services growing and locally based entrepreneurs. This membership includes space to sell their products, brand promotion, and offers networking/resources that help stimulate sustainable growth.

How is this different?

We understand the struggles of local small business owners and believe in the value of quality handmade products. Alakoko alleviates the time and overhead expense it would cost to open and operate a store so you can focus on mastering your craft.

Compared to wholesale which takes 50-60% of sales, we keep things simple with a monthly membership. This means every purchase in Alakoko goes directly to the maker which means more profit, more cash flow, and more potential for growth.
