Female Influencers Spring 2018: Lori Amway and Rhonda Thorpe
A door of opportunity opened for Lori Amway and Rhonda Thorpe when the office supply company where they worked closed their Kennett Square branch. The two women took a leap of faith through that door, opened Kennett Copy & More, and haven’t looked back.
“It’s important to us,” they say, “to provide a store with items and services that home-based businesses, small businesses, and the huge art community are in need of.” And it’s also important to them to provide the kind of personal service that is often lost in our fast-paced, technology-centric world. At Kennett Copy & More, Amway and Thorpe like to get to know their customers, and their customers get to know them, too.
“Together,” they say, “women-owned businesses are bringing back the small-town feel to Kennett Square,” and they encourage others to believe in themselves and to take chances.
