One Year Of Reflections: Our Story So Far

April 29th, 2023 marks one year since our doors first opened. We are excited to celebrate STORIES By SWISSBO’s first full year and want to thank you for joining us on our journey.
There is a lot of momentum and excitement for the coming year. But first, we’ve taken a moment to reflect on the year behind us. It is with heartfelt gratitude that we look back upon the past twelve months and the memories we’ve collected along the way.
Join us as we reminisce about some of our favourite moments from the past year.
On April 29, 2022 we had our Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting!
Over the summer we had some fun in the sun! Of course, you never know when it’s going to rain in North Vancouver… 
Autumn 2022: We officially became a Secrid Care & Repair Point. Repairing items is a great step towards sustainability. Repair, don’t replace.
October 31, 2022: We had a spooky time at Halloween. Thomas and his spider friend saw some great costumes and handed out lots of candy to local trick-or-treaters!
Winter 2022: The holiday season came in full swing, with Black Friday sales and lots of holiday cheer.
 Best of all, we celebrated an important milestone with cuddle+kind:

We are so proud to partner with you on our mission to fight childhood hunger. Today, we’re celebrating reaching an amazing milestone: 25 MILLION MEALS donated! And 620 of those are thanks to Stories by Swissbo!

Every time you bring cuddle+kind into your store, you:

  *   support a socially conscious family business

  *   help empower artisans with sustainable, fair trade income

  *   donate nutritious meals to children in need in the USA, Canada and around the world

We could not be more grateful for your support!

This weekend on April 29th 2023 we’re celebrating our first anniversary in store. We’re hosting a prize raffle as our way of saying thank you to all our supporters. Our first year has been a blast and we look forward to many wonderful years to come!
We’re excited to continue working with brands that make a difference in the world, continue our commitment to United Nations Sustainability and Development goals, and most of all we look forward to meeting many great people along the way.
