MARKET IN A BOX - CURATED BOXES OF LOCAL GOODS
When COVID-19 hit and events were deemed unnecessary during the pandemic, our team in Charlotte, NC had to pivot or risk going out out of business entirely. Jordan, Chief Retail Strategist, took it upon herself to make sure the team and community had a solid form of income and something to look forward to. The idea to bring the local goods to the customer's door was an easy one and has grown in just a short period of time.
IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR QUINTESSENTIAL SOUTH END CLT, YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE
Front Porch Sundays was the dream of Terry Shook of Shook Kelley. He felt his property, in the heart of South End, was underutilized on the weekends. He imagined a Sunday event where banjos were playing, coffee and mimosas were flowing, and newspapers were in the hands of everyone in attendance.
Since his original plan, Front Porch Sundays has organically grown to host 70 local businesses in an open air market. On the first Sunday of April - December you can find multiple food trucks, mobile shops, live music, and fun happenings at Sycamore Brewing.
THE EXECUTION TEAM
Front Porch Sundays happens because of the efforts of the Esther and Elsa Retail team and their passion for bringing the community together in support of small business.
What started as a small women's boutique in Plaza Midwood, ended up being something so much more. Jordan started planning the markets you've come to know today in an effort to make sure they were a place to really build a following and an income.
Jordan's grown the company's portfolio and the team over five years of business.
