2019 Power 50: Amy Lynn Chase

More Information

Chase’s ability to create cultural destinations reached another level this year when she opened her second Haberdash clothing store, this time in Worcester’s Canal District – the site of her original placemaking success after she opened the Crompton Collective antique and handmade items boutique in 2012. The Haberdash Worcester follows the Haberdash Hudson store in 2017, elevating that town’s already rising destination status.

Chase’s businesses have created jobs for more than 100 people, including antique dealers and the stores’ staff. The White Room, Chase’s event space in the basement of Crompton Place, hosts a variety of events and donates space to the Canal District Farmers Market, helping generate income for 28 farmers and small-batch food producers.

Where is Central Mass. headed? The community is so appreciative of the buy-local, eat-local movement, more small businesses will open and thrive. If we can survive all the construction … wink wink.

Early start: When I was too young to get a real job, the owner of a pet shop let me help him after school. I hoped to one day be Hamster Manager.
