May 19 2020, 10:39 am

Toronto’s shipping container market, Stackt, has officially launched a Click and Collect market to facilitate safe, easy, and local shopping.

The new online shop features goods from a variety of local businesses, including distributors that connect local farmers with urban markets, Toronto-based restaurants like Conspiracy Pizza, newly-launched small businesses, and more.

You can navigate through the offerings, which range from pre-made pizzas and produce boxes to beers, wines, DIY cocktail kits, and household products. Once you’ve found what you fancy, simply add products to your cart, select a time slot, and enjoy a contactless, outdoor pickup at Stackt Market at 28 Bathurst Street.

For those with cars, drive-thru pickup is also available at 3 Tecumseth Street.

“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,” said Matt Rubinoff, founder of Stackt, in a release.

“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.”

Regarding the pick-up fees for the service, 100% of the profit is being donated to The Stop  and its emergency food access services.

Those who wish to contribute extra can purchase a Pay It Forward box — 100% of those proceeds will also to The Stop, on behalf of the customer.
