This week on the blog we have guest blogger Chelsea owner of Meraki Supply Co! Have a read on what she had to say about Meraki Supply Co, us at Local Laundry and partnerships for future exciting plans!
Meraki is a Greek Verb meaning to do something with soul, creativity, and love; to put something of yourself into your work. With Meraki Supply Co, my objective is to work with local brands and companies who put Meraki into everything that they do!
Having Meraki located in the heart of the Kensington community is a crucial aspect to what we're all about. With a strong support for locally owned and operated businesses, it was a no brainer to open up in this unique neighbourhood. With hangout spots like The Roasterie, Oak Tree Tavern, Sunnyside Market, Crave Cupcakes, and many others, it's hard not to fall in love with Kensington and the people of the community! There's a great bond between the businesses and a great amount of support for each other that makes this whole experience so much more worth it.
Since day one I knew we had something special with Local Laundry. They're incredibly driven to inspire, to help the community, and to genuinely grow/expand their project into something amazing! The impact they've made on Calgary in the last year is truly an inspiration and we're so glad to be along for the ride. We've had the opportunity to watch the brand continue to evolve through some amazing growth and we don't see them slowing down anytime soon! It's quickly become a staple on our shelves and in everyone's wardrobe. We can't wait to see what Connor and Dustin have in store next!
Where We're Headed
