West Seattle Monday: Stockbox; dog dips; NDNC; more

That’s not just a portable, that’s the Stockbox Grocers mini-mini-market, expected to open today, after a couple days’ extra preparation. It’s one of today’s highlights, from the WSB West Seattle Events calendar and other announcements.

STOCKBOX OPENING: From Carrie at Stockbox, just announced by e-mail:

Pending our final permit inspection this morning, Stockbox Grocers will open for business this afternoon at 2 pm! Stop by anytime to check out the store or to make a purchase: we are based in the parking lot of the WestHaven Apartments at 2201 SW Holden. The store is in the parking lot off of the 24th at SW Holden and our hours are:
Monday-Friday 2 pm to 8 pm
Saturday-Sunday 8 am to 8 pm
We have had an exciting week setting up the store and meeting many of our new neighbors. The visitors that we have had continue to comment on how much variety we were able to fit into the store – so I hope that we can surprise you too! We have a mix of inventory including produce, milk, frozen pizza, cleaning supplies, polenta, beans, cereal, baking supplies, chips and snacks, soup, ice cream, eggs, and more!

    Yay! Stockbox is open!

  • My two cents ... September 12, 2011 (11:25 am)

    The actual Stockbox looks to be a little more ‘drab” than the conceptual drawing originally presented. Too bad since it it doesn’t really cry out “grocery store”.

Sorry, comment time is over.
