Paul Westrick didn’t anticipate opening a second location of his Downtown store Zeroz. But, when developers at Bridge Park asked him to join the growing number of local businesses there, Westrick saw an opportunity. Next to neighbor RAM Brewing, Zeroz Bridge Park will focus on retail, leaving its Downtown store to manage production for both locations.
Zeroz opened six years ago, introducing Westrick’s creation to the city. His minimalist wallet, inspired by his cycling lifestyle, comes in three sizes: extra small, holding two or three cards; small, holding between four and six; and medium, offering space for up to 10 cards. Their manufacturing happens in the back of his store, executed by CCAD students, artists, designers, and others interested in “craft work.”
