Panther Co. already has a physical location in which buildout has begun, and our buildout contractors (L + R Design Lab) are just waiting for the green light. Along with this, we have accounts ready for purchase to fill the shop with some amazing inventory. So where do you come in?
We believe that the resurgence of American manufacturing can be pushed to new heights when the barrier between production and customer is removed. Panther is creating a space that is not only reminiscent of a past golden age of American made goods, but also provides an inviting experience in which you can learn about American made goods first hand, while enjoying the community-minded environment that Panther Co. offers.
So where will your money go?
1) $6000 will go towards buying inventory from American made brands that will be sold in both our online and brick and mortar store (Red Clouds Collective, Otterwax, and Carhartt along with a multitude of others!)
2) $7000 will go towards completing our buildout of the final shop fixtures. All of the fixtures will be created locally in Portland by L + R Design Lab.
3) $2000 will go towards incentive fulfillment and shipping
