Our History

Dr. Melinda Myers opened Good Relations in December, 1983 as a home-based pleasure-party company. On May 23, 1995, after hosting 2000 parties (1000 of them herself), she opened our first boutique with a very part-time staff of two in Arcata. The first Eureka location opened at 308 2nd Street on June 27, 1998. To accommodate our business expansion, we moved across the street to 223 2nd Street in Old Town Eureka in March of 2005.

Dr. Myers is a licensed clinical psychologist (PSY 22811) in private practice in Arcata. In addition, she holds a three-year appointment at Humboldt State University in the department of Psychology.

Currently Good Relations employs 4 education and sales assistants. Still under the direct management of Dr. Myers, our business continues to grow. We are members of Eureka Mainstreet, and participate monthly in Arts Alive and other community events, including proudly sponsoring Humboldt Pride.
