Meet The Small Businesses Of Jane

November 30, 2019

 

It’s Small Business Saturday! As a former small business and a supporter of small businesses across the country, this is one of our favorite days! Jane began when our founders, Mike and Megan McEwan, created Jane as a way to provide for their family after the company Mike worked for went out of business. The McEwans’ passion for helping businesses grow and flourish is because they’ve been there themselves. 

 

Sellers really are the heart and soul of our business and we do everything we can to help them be successful. That success isn’t just defined by sales either, but in giving them the freedom to not just support their family, but also to spend quality time with them.

 

 

When you shop on Jane, you’re actually shopping from thousands of independent sellers in the Jane marketplace. Everything you see on our website is sold by boutiques, who share their products with us and you. This means that every purchase you make directly benefits their families. Here’s how selling on Jane has changed these sellers’ lives.
