SUPPORTING INDEPENDENT RETAILERS
Our industry wouldn’t be the same without our independent tack shops and mobile retailers. Many are having a hard time competing in this new retail landscape. We work with these retailers to help them move their overstock, effectively allowing our riders to access the sale racks of tack stores from across the country.
150 billion garments are produced each year. Of that, approximately 30% never get sold — and much of that is ultimately destroyed. Meanwhile, many of the products that are sold either end up sitting unused (waste) or tossed into the garbage (double waste). We’re committed to doing our part to reduce retail waste by (1) showcasing overstock to new audiences; and (2) minimizing our own retail footprint by choosing environmentally responsible packaging whenever possible.
The TackHack was founded in 2018 by Lauren Garvey, a lifelong equestrian. Like many riders, Lauren left the sport when she went off to college. After graduating from business school, Lauren decided to get back in the saddle for the first time in over a decade. This meant some necessary purchases considering that her pull-on boots and dry-clean Tailored Sportsman breeches were no longer "current." Hungry for deals but unwilling to compromise on quality, Lauren searched around for the equestrian version of Nordstrom Rack and came up short. So she decided to start it herself.
Lauren earned her BA from Barnard College at Columbia University, her JD from DePaul University College of Law, and her MBA from The University of Michigan's Ross School of Business (GO BLUE).
Lauren works with the lovely Jennifer Scates and Ashleigh Fleener at The TackHack's Austin, Texas "base-ops."
