Shopping Locally Makes A Difference
Running a custom gift boutique from her home, Phyllis already had the concept of “porch pick ups” down – clients would order gifts, she would make them, and set them outside on her porch for a contactless pick up.
Seeing how miserable it was at the mall, where only 2-10 people were allowed into each store – with plenty of people in line 6 feet apart in the cold, Phyllis knew that there had to be a better way to shop. She came up with the idea of “Shop My Porch” where there is a focus on a hyperlocal economy – bringing makers together and letting neighbors and local community members shop their porches.
The best part is that we ALL benefit from a strong economy fueled by successful locally owned businesses.
“We knew we had a great product, but we didn’t know how to take the business to the next level so that we could see real success. The comprehensive Dynamic Growth program offered by Haven worked with us every step of the way so we could grow our company without sacrificing our company spirit. We just made Fortune 500!”
“Our production had been ramped up to full time, but the profits just weren’t there. We didn’t know what we were doing wrong. Haven Consulting showed us an amazing number of areas where we could cut our overhead, from more efficient parts layout and energy-efficient lighting to recycling waste and more effective work flow.”
