Welcome to The Collective, a place to gather, shop, and inspire.
Welcome to The Collective
The Collective will be a place for you to elevate your purchase from simply a transactional experience to a transformational one. The tagline, “Gather–Shop–Inspire” encourages people to meet at the shop, to include a visit to The Collective as part of a day out, or as a gathering spot after a meeting, a place that encourages you to explore the shelves collectively.

We are looking for some of Maryland’s talented small businesses to showcase at The Collective. We have two incredible opportunities for you to be featured.
Apply to be featured in our brick-and-mortar location at Metro Centre; a thoughtfully curated space for shoppers looking for high quality products from locally owned businesses. The shop will promote makers within-store business snapshots and through social media outlets.
Apply to be featured in our Online Showcase; an opportunity for discerning shoppers to find everything from website designers to event planners, pet spas to car detailing, barber shops to architects. The website showcase will include a snapshot of your business story and a link to your website.
Accepted small businesses will be provided with a one-year contract with the option to renew. We are currently accepting applications for our opening in late Fall 2023. For best consideration please complete the applications by September 5, 2023.
The Collective echoes CCBC’s tagline, “See What You Can Be” as a showcase of the possibilities that come from those who take the entrepreneurial leap and start their own business. This project is supported by CCBC Center for Business Innovation through generous funding from CCBC and the Ratcliffe Foundation.
