Creating community is connecting with your customers and neighbors in a meaningful way. Do the things that make you a good neighbor.

We highly recommend launching your store with a charity partner. You could donate food or product, labor for events, or maybe your employees wouldn’t mind pooling their tips now and then. Use the Grand Opening event to declare your new relationship.

For additional charity ideas and information…

  • We’ve pulled together all on our charity-related activities on the Strategy: Support Local Charities page.
  • To find potential partners for charity events, try our Community Map Tool to find parks, hospitals, museums and other groups that may be appropriate for you to support.

That concludes the Grand Opening Event portion, [user_custom_field field=”first_name”]. Let’s head to the activities that happen once you’ve opened.
