Macy’s is launching a retail concept aimed at entrepreneurs in the 12-to-19 age group in partnership with Target Evolution, a Texas-based nonprofit created to fight youth unemployment. The companies will initially open a Trail Blaze Shop in the Market by Macy’s in Flower Mound, Texas as well as launching related two-day popup experiences that will offer teens a chance to sell their products inside Macy’s stores.
The latest Trail Blaze Shop offers teens a chance to earn money by selling their own goods while also learning about entrepreneurship and financial literacy. Target Evolution already operates its own retail stores in Houston and Dallas and is working with Macy’s to further expand its reach. The retailers aim to open stores in 10 cities within the next two years. Read more at Retail TouchPoints.
