Store Progress Update #1
Our IndieGoGo fundraising campaign ended Saturday morning at midnight. Thanks to you, we raised $15,455 of our $15,000 goal! We appreciate your support – the funds we raised will be used to help get our store up and running.
Renovations inside our Manor Road storefront have begun. Visible changes to the site will become more dramatic as our permitting process moves along. In the meantime, you’ll be able to get excited about upcoming volunteer opportunities throughout the building process and a pre-opening event (more details to come).
As a team, we’re working as hard as we can to keep things on schedule and prepare in.gredients for opening day. Yes, it’s tiring work – but we’re passionate for our cause. We’re excited to extend bulk to the entire grocery store, introduce BYOC (bring your own container) as a way to shop sustainably, and give Austinites the chance to enjoy local, organic food while minimizing waste. Later this fall, you’ll be able to swing by in.gredients for a glass of wine, a mug of coffee, a lunchtime meeting, or your grocery list – without having to worry about how much waste you’re generating.
Keep following us, and stay in touch!
Your grocery pioneers,
The in.gredients team
