Not only is it the day before Thanksgiving – one of the busiest grocery shopping days of the year, but today we launch our new online store. Who came up with that timing???
We’re calling it the “Chimacum Corner WEBSTORE” (as opposed to our brick and mortar “Chimacum Corner FARMSTAND”). Please check it out and browse through our initial offerings of gift baskets and Chimacum Corner apparel and accessories.
It’s true that “FOOD FROM HERE” produced by our local talent make unique and meaningful gifts for those you love, and this year we’re offering to help you with the packaging, presentation, and mailing. Choose between a variety of themed baskets, each designed to please. By sending the gift of local fare, you are not only supporting our community of farmers & producers, but our ever-growing crew of store workers – keeping our economy local!
Cracker will fresh-pack any orders placed before 2 pm Pacific time, gift wrap and handwrite a card of her making with your message, then run it across the street that afternoon to the Chimacum Post Office. It will be sent Priority Mail (Mon-Fri) and it should arrive to most places in the US within 2-3 shipping days.
As of today, in addition to gift baskets online, we are offering a selection of our Corner apparel and accessories. Eventually our plan is to grow the choice of “webstore” offerings to include individual non-perishable items. We see this as yet another way in which we can expand the market for our fabulous local farmers and producers and thus further our mission of supporting a local agricultural economy.
Please give the webstore a look and tell us what you think. We are very interested in your feedback, questions, and any special requests.
Wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow!
