Black-Owned Pop Up @ West Elm


In recognition of Black History Month, West Elm Bakery Square will be hosting a day of pop-up shops supporting local Black-owned businesses. In 2020, West Elm committed to the 15 Percent Pledge to support Black-owned businesses, with a promise to allocate 15% of shelf space in stores to local Black-owned business’ merchandise. To date, West Elm has donated over $200k to the 15 Percent Pledge.

On Sunday, February 21 from 1-5 p.m., West Elm Bakery Square will host Kin of Duncan, Blakbird Jewelry and Knotzland, three local Pittsburgh Black-owned businesses, for a day of pop-up shops in the store.
