Houston, TX – Target Evolution Inc has opened their flagship Trail Blaze store (formerly the Teen Biz Pop Up Shop) in The Galleria, Houston to support youth entrepreneurs ages 12-19. The Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the new location will be on September 18th at 6 pm. The store is located on the 2nd floor of The Galleria next to Saks Fifth Avenue.
Non-profit Target Evolution has created Trail Blaze stores to offer youth the chance to sell their products in high-traffic, luxury malls. Their flagship store in The Galleria in Houston, Texas, will allow youth entrepreneurs the chance to earn a profit from sales and gain retail experience while working in their stores.
The Houston, Texas location spans 3,000 square ft of educational and working space, including three classrooms, conference rooms, content creation, and media areas, as well as a co-working space; all of these spaces are used exclusively by young entrepreneurs ages 12 to 19 with products to sell. The young entrepreneurs involved in the Trail Blaze project can keep 90% of the proceeds from sales of their products, allowing them to pay for their future. This includes earning funds for college.
Trail Blaze stores have been created to help teens earn money, gain valuable entrepreneurial experience, and make connections. The Trail Blaze store is open in The Galleria Houston and will be open in Macy’s @ Galleria Dallas in October 2021. Trail Blaze products are also available online via the Target Evolution website.
