TEMPORARY CLOSURE

Dear Clinton Park Thingery Members and Supporters,

We're sorry to inform you that as of September 30th 2018, the Thingery will be temporarily closing its location at Clinton Park.

It's been a pleasure to interact with our members over the past five months as we've been setting up and operating the site. We appreciate all of those that have signed up to become a member and supporter of our project.

We are having to take this measure due to the insufficient level of interest necessary to keep the project financially sustainable.

This is so long but not farewell - over the next six months, we plan on doing more engagement with the Clinton Park community to determine the best place to establish another Thingery.

Again, thank you all for your support.

- ThingeryHQ & The Clinton Park Thingery Co-operative

Thingery Location

The Clinton Park Thingery is located outside Clinton Park, near the corner of Graveley Street and Slocan Street. The container will be parked on the West side of Slocan Street.

Progress to date:

Community Interest (Approved)

In September of 2016 we conducted an initial community meeting with members of the Hastings-Sunrise 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).
