The ecommerce-brick-and-mortar hybrid model is becoming the new standard in retail. Amazon has had a slew of major brand partnership announcements this year, and Santa Monica-based Happy Returns is seeing significant growth. The company, which provides ecommerce return sites at shopping centers across the country, has received $4 million in Series A financing and has secured five new brand partnerships with online retailers. This all comes as the company opens its 40th return center.
