Megan O’Sullivan –
While in graduate school, Tia’s Place owner Megan O’Sullivan conceived of a different kind of clothing boutique combining up-and-coming designers and niche brands with staple lines that would attract clientele wanting a personalized shopping experience in a neighborhood atmosphere, although they were in the city. In early 2004, armed with eight years of financial experience from PricewaterhouseCoopers, Megan traded Wall Street for Grove Street, where she settled on a 2,000 square foot space in downtown historic Jersey City, NJ to open Tia’s Place. In 2009, Tia’s Grand Central Terminal was opened. This satellite store was the perfect answer for clients needing a fun, affordable boutique to express their style and indulge their shopping urge amidst a wounded economy.
Since opening, Tia’s has become a destination for stylists and fashionistas. Megan has served as a stylist for magazine and television and a resource for other stylists through the NYC area. Future plans include expanding the stores eponymous jewelry line to bags and clothing, continuing their special events like the Annual Fall Fashion Preview with Shape Magazine, and seeking out their next location.
