Madewell and ThredUp team up to open a "circular store"
On Thursday, Madewell opened a new storefront in Williamsburg, Brooklyn stocked entirely with secondhand clothes from the brand, sourced by ThredUp. This "circular store" is a continuation of an existing partnership between the two companies. (Most recently, they launched the online denim resale platform Madewell Forever.) In a statement, Erin Wallace, VP of Integrated Marketing at ThredUP, said this brick-and-mortar activation "[represents] the future of fashion — a circular future in which retailers design for longevity, and consumers shop with resale in mind. Our hope is that visitors will leave inspired and armed with the knowledge they need to take a more sustainable approach to their wardrobes." {Fashionista Inbox}
