LOS ANGELES — Luggage company Away has found fashionable footing on Melrose Avenue for its first West Coast store.
The outpost, totaling 1,200 square feet, comes on the heels of a holiday pop-up shop in downtown Los Angeles last year and the close of a $20 million Series B round in May. Away’s total raised to date is now $31 million.
