Women’s Retail Collective Podcast: Nook Co-Founders, Maria Vogelei and Sy Yang

Maria Vogelei started Nook because she was looking for an escape for her and her toddler daughter. What she didn’t realize was that after partnering with Co-Founder Sy Yang, they’d create one of the most innovative and successful re-inventions of mall spaces.
