You did it! And let's keep this party going....
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
This morning, Stockbox Grocers hit more than $15,000 in pledges, with our most recent $5000 pledged within a 48 hour period! We have officially met our target - thanks to you!
The best part is that we still have 12 more days to raise funds and the sky's the limit at this point. We are now aiming for $20,000-$25,000.
We also wanted to share more exciting news: we just received our land-use permit and are ramping up for a busy week! The store will arrive at our Delridge site this coming Tuesday and we have a tight schedule of contractors and deliveries all the way through Wednesday afternoon. Pending inspections from the health department and permitting, we will open on Friday afternoon! That's right, we're hoping to open in less than a week.
The money that you pledged on the kickstarter campaign will ensure that the store can be stocked with food throughout our prototype period! And, if we hit our new targets, the funding might be enough to help us move onto the next stage: a permanent store. The team will be working hard over the next few weeks and months to find a permanent location and secure the resources to make this happen.
Thank you again - we really couldn't be doing what we're doing without you. We will continue to keep you updated on our kickstarter funding and the store opening.
Enjoy your holiday weekend!
The Stockbox Team: Jacqueline, Carrie, Eliza, and Michael
