bare market, a new pop-up zero-waste grocery concept, is set to open its first permanent store in Toronto’s Danforth neighbourhood.
Founder Dayna Stein says that bare market will be looking to open more stores once it works out the wrinkles in its first permanent location, reports Retail Insider.
bare market was founded last year and opened its first pop-up last June. So far it has opened some 65 pop-up stores. It carries more than 450 products, all in reuseable or compostable packaging. Customers can also rent containers for a refundable deposit.
Up to now the focus has been on locally sourced and/or sustainably sourced body and home care products. Coming soon are bulk dry foods, dairy/vegan alternatives, proteins and ready-to-go prepared foods.
The 2800 square foot store will open around the end of the year.
