CAREERS AT MERIDIAN
For nearly three decades, Meridian has been Bozeman’s premier clothing and shopping destination for elevated but accessible women’s fashion. The Heroine of the West endlessly inspires us: an archetype of the stylish, multi-faceted woman who can roll her sleeves up and get to work, attend a gala, climb a mountain, host a dinner party, or jet set to a far-away land. She’s versatile, cultured, and always dressed with intention. Meridian’s retail shopping concept invites our guests into an authentic, inspiring space in which they can channel their inner Heroine of the West, finding intentional pieces for every moment of their every day.
In the early 1990s, Bozeman was a burgeoning cow town, sorely lacking space for women to find goods to match their evolving lifestyles. A fourth-generation Montanan, Andrea “Andi” Bennett, saw this opportunity and opened Meridian Boutique in 1993. Her vision was to help women elevate their every day, believing that what a person wears truly affects how they move through the world.
Twenty years later, Andi’s life path crossed with Haley Connolly's. The two women bonded over fashion, entrepreneurship, their mutual love of travel, and their western roots, discovering that their ranching families were friends in the 1950s. Their friendship evolved into a partnership, and today Haley carries the late Andi Bennett’s legacy with pride through their shared vision of dressing the creative woman for every moment of her life.
