Who is Retail Therapy AZ?

Hey everyone! We are Erica and Jacque, two Mom-preneurs, building a legacy for our daughters, and being able to immerse ourselves in our passion of supporting local. 

We began our business in 2021 as a mobile clothing boutique, vending at several local pop up events. We quickly realized that our passion wasn't clothing, but rather the connections we were making with the other local businesses. We decided we wanted to be more on the event coordinator side of pop up events, and started hosting community markets throughout the valley. Both still working our 9-5 jobs, one as a teacher, and the other as a restaurant manager, we formed this "idea" that one day we would have a local storefront where all the small businesses we interacted with could have a permanent space to sell their products. This "idea" quickly turned into a reality when 40 of our local businesses all said they were 100% interested. 

Our first Downtown Glendale location started in May of 2022 and we have continued to expand to find other locations and opportunities for small businesses to build and grow together.  We absolutely love what we have created and the community that has surrounded us! We have so much more in store and can't wait to share this journey with all of you!  

Our Mission

Our mission is to create a collaborative community for small businesses to thrive. Our goal is to inspire passionate individuals to take a leap of faith and pursue what they love. We aim to provide resources and strategies to be successful in a retail space. We will continue to find ways to connect small business owners to the community. We will continue to build our small business family where everyone feels loved and supported!
