25% OFF EVERYTHING! NO CODE NEEDED!
May 27, 2013
effie’s paper was one of 21 businesses selected to participate in Macy’s Class of 2013 – THE WORKSHOP. THE WORKSHOP is an exclusive retail vendor development program designed to give high potential minority and/or women business owners tools to better succeed and sustain growth in the retail industry. We were extremely honored to have been chosen and humbled by the amazing company we were in.
Like a number of relatively young businesses, many of ep’s day-to-day operations are handled by Kalyn Johnson Chandler, our Founder and Creative Director. The day-to-day would not be the same without our awesome Strategic Advisor, Nicole Johnson. Nicole carefully vets the overall strategy and direction for effie’s paper and has been an integral part of effie’s paper from Day 1. Fortunately, Nicole was able to participate in THE WORKSHOP with Kalyn; her presence in New York (Nicole lives and works in Michigan) made a great experience an amazing one! We met some great people and made new friends, we learned all the ins and outs of working with a large retailer and got a chance to hobknob with some of the Macy’s bigwigs.
Who knows what the future holds, but so far 2013 has been the best year yet for effie’s paper! Stay tuned …
