About Mac & Mia

Mac & Mia's goal is to define tomorrow’s consumer retail experience, and evolve it beyond traditional brick & mortar and ecommerce. Our entire organization is driven by the desire to delight our customers at every step, and to remove the friction pervasive in other retail models. We are guided by the empathy we have for consumers to create products and services that are intuitive, versatile, and accessible. Help us build the gold-standard in the curated-commerce space – and then make it even better. Mac & Mia customers take a brief style quiz before requesting a box for their child. They are then paired with a stylist who handpicks 6-8 items for the child. The items are shipped and the customer can keep what they love and send back the rest. Mac & Mia currently serves children from ages newborn to 6 years old.
