OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 31, 2013) - On Nov. 1 members of the media are invited to attend a private soft launch of terra20's second store, a boutique in Ottawa's Wellington West Village. Ottawa-founded terra20 launched its first store in the Pinecrest Shopping Centre just over one year ago, making it North America's largest eco-retailer.
The second store reflects a shift to a smaller-scale, community-based model that will characterize new Ottawa stores going forward. This includes:
- Commissioning Transportation Demand Management research to encourage sustainable transportation options amongst staff and customers;
- Crowdsourcing local residents through social media to determine which community initiatives terra20 will support;
- Working with local residents to better understand the flavour and priorities of the neighbourhood, and how terra20 can meet its needs.
What: terra20 Store Private Preview Event - 10% of all sales to go to a crowd-sourced community initiative.
When: Friday, Nov. 1, 6PM - 9PM. The store opens to the public on Saturday, Nov. 2 at 9AM.
Where: terra20 Wellington West, 1304 Wellington Street W. Ottawa. (at Grange)
Who: Media, community members and organizations, terra20 leadership.
