the RETAILERY team
Megan O’Sullivan is an entrepreneur with a background in finance and retail. She received her business degree and MBA at Rutgers and began her career in corporate finance at PricewaterhouseCoopers, in the capital markets group. After nearly 10 years, she decided to make her dream a reality and opened the first of two retail boutiques, called Tia’s Place, in Jersey City NJ. In 2009, she opened her second location, a 480 square foot store in New York City's famed Grand Central Terminal. Since opening, both locations have become synonymous with accessible luxury. A unique product mix and constant new offerings have made them a favorite resource for bloggers, stylists, media and influencers.
Most recently, Megan’s mix of finance and retail experience have led to the creation of Retailery, the first Mobile Store Licensing company of its kind. Retailery mobile boutiques offer entrepreneurs the chance to own their own business, while providing the on-going support they need to be successful. For consumers, Retailery’s fresh new approach to retail through mobile boutiques allows them to shop where they want, when they want.
Retailery is currently licensing mobile boutiques on the east coast with plans to expand nationwide.
