The Big Apple is a “make or break” market, as in, if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. And today’s news is that our favorite e-commerce company just opened its first multi-purpose space in Manhattan’s posh SoHo neighborhood.
The new multi purpose facility is designed to support existing and budding entrepreneurs, to quote from the press release.
The multi purpose facility consists of a 2-storey 8000 sqft space, that brings to life the platform’s thriving community of merchants and local business owners (this is again from the press release).
Upon entering, visitors are met with a rotating pop-up shop of selections from several local merchants, currently showcasing two Brooklyn-based companies: Nguyen Coffee Supply and indoor plant retailer Greenery Unlimited.
“In the center of the open floor plan sits the Cha Ching Café, operated by merchant Birch Coffee, and on the left side of the cafe are casual workstations, where business founders and their employees can meet with Shopify support experts in person for free 30-minute one-on-one sessions.”
“Much of NYC’s heart and soul comes from its entrepreneurs,” said Shopify President Harley Finkelstein. “To keep NYC as one of the most entrepreneurial cities in the world, we’re giving New Yorkers the resources and tools they need to build successful businesses.”
