Their multidisciplinary approach and deep understanding of Gen Z audiences make them the perfect partner to elevate our brand presence in the digital space and beyond.”

The General Store will leverage its expertise in expansive creative and youth culture to create content and experiences that specifically resonate across platforms such as TikTok and Instagram.

Matt Newell, partner and CEO at The General Store, expressed enthusiasm about the new partnership: “It’s always a privilege to work on an iconic brand.
