TALBOTS STEPS UP: Having reopened its Boylston Street store that is located a block away from the Boston Marathon finish line, Talbots will donate 10 percent of the sales generated in that location through Sunday to the One Fund Boston. Talbots chief executive officer and chief financial officer Mike Archbold and chief operating officer Michele Mandell visited the store Wednesday and to spend some time with employees. “They greatly appreciate the care and support they have received from their corporate partners, and we want to pass along their heartfelt thanks to all,” the two executives told staffers said via email.

The duo also encouraged other staffers to help spread the word about helping the fund that will aid bombing victims’ families.
