GreaterGood.com opens first brick and mortar store at
Mall of America® bringing the unique retail concept to life
GreaterGood.com allows guests to give more back to their favorite cause
BLOOMINGTON, MN May 18, 2015
GreaterGood.com opened its first store at Mall of America® after operating solely with a digital storefront for 16 years. Bringing its unique retail concept to life, GreaterGood.com allows guests to actively support their favorite cause with each transaction. Every time one of the more than 7,000 items is purchased, a portion of that sale is donated to charity.
Featuring a distinctive array of products including jewelry, apparel and gifts, the store is set up with eleven distinct sections, each of which highlights and supports a specific cause. The eleven areas guests can shop and donate to include animals, hunger, breast cancer, veterans, autism, Alzheimers, diabetes, literacy, the Rainforest, Global Girlfriend and Creative Kidstuff. Not only will this landmark retail location generate charitable funds through sales, more importantly it will raise public awareness of these important issues.
Were thrilled to be opening the first ever GreaterGood.com retail store at Mall of America, said Roberta Bonoff, President of GreaterGoods Kids. The space not only gives us access to the more than 40 million visitors Mall of America attracts each year, but it also gives us an incredible opportunity to connect with our shoppers in person and give them a space to interact with these important causes. There is national and international reach that is ideal for this kind of global awareness initiative.
Striving to connect a passionate audience with simple tools to make the world a better place, GreaterGood.com is proud to have given more than $35 million to non-profit charities around the world since 1999. Creative Kidstuff, a Twin Cities staple in childrens retail, is owned and operated under the GreaterGood retail family.
