Yoobi is more than just an adorable resource for kids school supplies—it's a philanthropic movement. Launched last year, the El Segundo-based company promises its online shoppers that for every Yoobi item purchased, a Yoobi item will be donated to a classroom in need. (In fact, Yoobi means "one for you, one for me.") Now that the retailer has become a household name due to being exclusively sold at Target stores nationwide, Yoobi is ready to get physical with its first-ever retail location.
Located at Westifeld's Santa Anita Mall, the vibrant new shop features more than 450 Yoobi products, including arts and crafts essentials, desk organization items, backpacks, electronics, and more. And keeping with its giveback mission, for every Yoobi item purchase in-store, one will be donated to a local classroom in need that is within a 10-mile radius. Yoobi's goal is to support more than 400 local classrooms in the store's first year, so start shopping to help them get there.
Yoobi at Westfield Santa Anita is open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 9pm, and Sunday from 10am to 7pm.
