With street-facing retailers slowly starting to reopen for curbside pickup, Toronto’s shipping container market, Stackt, has launched an online shopping experience in order to start serving the public.

Shoppers can now browse goods from a variety of local businesses, as well as distributors that work with local farmers and urban markets on Stackt’s online store. Payments are made through the website and shoppers have the option of collecting via foot or drive-thru.

The Stackt Click + Collect program is perfect for those who want to support local businesses during this unprecedented time.

From locally-sourced produce and protein options to Belgian Moon beers, DIY cocktail kits, and takeout eats from Conspiracy Pizza, Victor Restaurant, and JoyBird Dim Sum, all is available at the click of a button. Once you make your purchase, all you have to do is choose a time slot for your contactless pickup. Those on foot can grab their pickup at 28 Bathurst St. while those in cars can grab orders from 3 Tecumseth St.

The new service is not only safe and convenient but charitable, too. Each purchase has a pickup fee associated with it and all pickup fees go to The Stop, a west-end Toronto nonprofit that provides healthy food to those in need. There’s also the option to “Pay It Forward” and donate a food box to The Stop Food Community Services.

While Stackt’s online shopping is running, the public space remains closed for now.

“Once the emergency declaration is lifted, we will introduce our new site plans that will address supporting a safe environment and allow our community to enjoy Stackt’s public space again,” Matt Rubinoff, the founder of Stackt said in a release. “Our goal right now is to support our Stackt partners, the community, and increase access to local businesses in a safe way.”
