NEW YORK — Brooke Richman in August will unveil Coop & Spree, a 1,000-square-foot store at 202 Elizabeth Street here. The new retail concept — it has nothing to do with poultry, as its name suggests — will be focused on contemporary women’s apparel and accessories with special services and lots of digital bells and whistles.
Richman, 27, didn’t start out wanting to be a retailer. The University of Pennsylvania graduate got her first job in the analyst sales and training program at Citi, but soon realized she wanted to work in fashion.
