Now, Nada’s owner, Marine Biologist Brianne Miller, has secured and signed the lease for a retail store, and after some serious renovations and blood, sweat, and tears, the plan is to officially open Vancouver’s first permanent 100% package-free grocery store in early 2018.
Looking towards opening, Nada’s hosting their first pop-up in their future space on Saturday, January 27.
The pop-up will run from 10 am to 6 pm and it will feature bulk dry goods (grains, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, honey, chocolate, etc.), cleaning supplies (soap, shampoo and conditioner, dish soap, laundry detergent), and a stash of long-lasting alternatives to single-use plastic disposables such as stainless steel straws, lunch containers, and reusable makeup rounds.
Located at 675 East Broadway, Nada Grocery will be all food – plain and simple. No packaging, no confusing labels with unrecognizable ingredients – just local grub and products that support the health of our bodies, our economy, and our planet.
As always, this Nada pop-up event is package free – that means bring-your-own-container and buy as little or as much as you need.
If you happen to forget, no worries, there will be upcycled jars for sale along with recycled and sanitized containers available for free. Attendees can also expect new products this time around.
Nada’s pop-up will accept cash or credit – no debit.
When: Saturday, January 27
Time: 10 am to 6 pm
Where: 675 East Broadway, Vancouver
