How You Can Help Us

Thank you so much for all of your words of support and encouragement in response to our announcement that our store will be closing this month. It is so lovely to know that you have appreciated Scoop Marketplace and it has made a difference in your life, and I am grateful to know that the work we have done has had a positive impact, even though it didn't turn out the way that I wanted it to.

We have a lot to do to wrap things up over the next couple of weeks. Here are some ways you can help:

  1. Help us find a new tenant. We need someone to take over the lease of this retail space ASAP. It is 1100 square feet, with reasonably low rent for the Kirkland area, and the lease term goes until June 2028.

  2. Capture Scoop through photos. We are looking for a photographer to come in on Friday and take some photo and video footage of the store before the shelves start clearing out. If you have photos or videos of Scoop, we would love to see them!

  3. Buy our inventory and equipment. We will be selling off all of our equipment including jars, scoops, scales, storage shelves, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, deli case etc.

  4. Skip the discount. As we near our closing date, we will be discounting our inventory. If you are able to, please consider skipping the discount and paying full price so that we can put that money back into the business. (Note from Stephanie: this will help me to recoup as much as possible as I work to pay off the business debt, and keep my family as safe as I can in this transition.)

  5. Volunteer your time. Once the store in closed, it will be all hands on deck to get everything cleared out. We would love to have some people come and work with us to get the job done.

  6. Send words of encouragement. The entire team could greatly benefit from a little extra love right now. All kind words sent via email and social media will be shared with the team, and it means so much to us when someone takes time to express their appreciation while shopping in the store.

If you can help in any way, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at Didn't see anything on the list that you can help with? Tell everyone about our closing sale! Invite people to come and stock up on some really incredible low waste living products at a good price. Or post about what Scoop has meant to you and tag us in it - we could all use some warm fuzzies right now.

Thank you in advance for all of your help to wrap things up and thank you for simply being here - for following along, for taking an interest in the work we are doing, and for even daring to believe that we could change our world for the better. Your thoughts and actions have a bigger impact than you might realize.
