Kids’ Clothing Subscription Box Startup Mac & Mia Shuts Down


July 23, 2019 – Chicago Inno – A Chicago startup that sent stylist-selected kids clothes to parents’ doors has shut down.

Mac & Mia announced on its website via a note from founder Marie Tillman that “the time has come for us to say goodbye.”

Mac & Mia connected parents with stylists who selected pieces from Mac & Mia’s inventory, and sent those items to their door in a box. Like similar services such as Trunk Club or Stitch Fix, parents could keep the clothes they wanted and send back what they didn’t like.

Founded in 2014, Mac & Mia raised $9 million in venture funding, including a $5 million Series A in April 2018. Its investors included Chicago Ventures, KGC Capital, Emerisque Ventures and Sam Yagan’s Corazon Capital.

“I’m deeply grateful for those who have been on the journey with me; the extraordinary group of stylists, our home office crew, supporters and investors, but most of all…YOU,” Tillman continued in the announcement. Tillman did not respond to a request for comment.
