Thingery Location

The Grandview-Woodland Thingery is located outside Mosaic Creek Park, at the corner of Charles Street and McLean Drive. The container will be parked on the East side of McLean Drive.

Progress to date:

Community Interest (Approved)

In August of 2016 we conducted an initial community meeting with members of the Grandview-Woodland community. We then conducted a series of pop-up Thingeries to demonstrate the need for a Thingery in the community.

Site Approval (Approved)

In August 2017, we have received approval from the City of Vancouver for a two year pilot permit for a Thingery in this location.

Co-op Established (Approved)

Once the site is approved, we move forward to establish the local branch. Each Thingery branch is a non-profit co-operative. We work with the local group to establish the rules, leadership and all administrative assets for the local branch.

Build & Inventory (Approved)

Once the local group is established, we help set up the container, the inventory and the inventory management system.

Launched

With the container all set up, we help launch the new location. All locations are set up with their own web page and inventory page. The Thingery parent organization takes care of all the ongoing operations (customer support, maintenance and software needs).
