For existing refill business/retail store fronts adding our inline dispensary zero waste business,and retail package, you can expect to use 300-500 square feet. Depending on whether you are carrying all the retail products alongside your refill displays. Larger dispensaries for larger stores are expected.
100% of our zero waste products are high quality, planet friendly and natural. We will not carry any SLS, phthalates, petroleum bi-products, or other chemicals in any of our bath, body or home products. We wholesale direct to zero waste business owners in our network as well as other refill business partners operating Refillery locations.
From Vancouver, Coquitlam, Langley, Maple Ridge in Western Canada to our fast growing list of in-line partners across the country!
The initial investment depends on which of our zero waste business models you choose. Obviously the home-based option is the least expensive and the full retail buildout is the most expensive. You can expect to spend anywhere from $5500 and up for an inline dispensary, $12,000 -$15,000 for Tow & Show, and for a brick and mortar refill business store, anywhere from $75,000 to $150,000 depending on store size. Home Bulk Parties are significantly less and more of a test of the eco business in your target market
We can have a Home Based refill business setup very quickly, the inline store is also fairly quick and if the retail space does not require too much buildout or merchandising prep, it can be up and running within a few weeks. A full sized, zero waste business/new retail store obviously take significantly more time and planning. We work closely with our eco business partners in developing a solid business model that reflects your market conditions and budget.
99% of our Refill Business lines are Canadian, and many of those are produced right here in beautiful British Columbia. We are proud to actively source local, zero waste business producers, artisans and eco business leaders. Our dryer balls are hand made by the woman who raises the sheep, literally up the road from our first location!
We have partnered with several US companies as well, in order to make our footprint a responsible one for our USA locations.
Most definitely! Our refill business launch location was built from reclaimed materials from the local Surrey New & Used, second hand stores, antique stores and cleverly repurposed materials. Any zero waste business needs to make their mantra part of their entire business plan, from the ground up literally!
Each of our eco business locations/stores will have it's own unique, local feel with a solid , re-use & repurposed mandate... and look AMAZING!
