stackt, Canada’s largest shipping container market, launches The Click + Collect market @ stackt, a convenient way to shop and support from local businesses.
The Click + Collect market @ stackt allows customers to shop from a variety of local businesses within one centralized hub. Participating stackt vendors include distributors that connect local farmers with urban markets, local restaurants + chefs, newly launched small businesses and a variety of well-known brands supporting the platform. Over the next few weeks, stackt will increase the offerings to the community to further support more local businesses.
“The impact that a lot of us have experienced has also severely affected the local business economy and that includes stackt. We were a physical place to gather and meet within the community, and we have now had to pivot within this current environment. Once the emergency declaration is lifted, we will introduce our new site plans that will address supporting a safe environment and allow our community to enjoy stackt’s public space again. However our goal right now is to support our stackt partners, the community and increase access to local businesses in a safe way.” said Matt Rubinoff, Founder of stackt.
Each sale from the program has a direct impact on the fundraising initiative which supports The Stop and their local community food centres. stackt is donating 100% of the pick-up fees to The Stop and their emergency food access services. Customers may also participate by purchasing a Pay It Forward box in which 100% of the proceeds will be donated on behalf of the customer to The Stop.
The Click + Collect market @ stackt offers two pickup zones situated within an outdoor environment. Customers can choose between a drive-thru method where items will be loaded directly into the trunk of their vehicle, or a curbside pickup for those on foot. Pickup time-slots will be staggered to allow for crowd control and proper social distancing. Customers will need to pre-order through www.stacktmarket.com and schedule a pick-up from the market’s Bathurst + Front Street location. The online marketplace offers products such as grocery goods from local farmers, a bottle shop full of DIY cocktails, pre-cooked meals from award-winning chefs + local restaurants.
