stockbox grocers: shipping container grocery store

stockbox grocers is a convenient miniature market that is packed inside a reclaimed shipping container and placed into the parking lot of an existing business or organization.

the stockbox team (michael brooks, jacqueline gjurgevich, carrie ferrence, and eliza michiels) have proposed for dozens of these stores to be located throughout urban food deserts, and within walking distance of home, work, and school.

the small stores are are designed to offer the essential grocery items and fresh produce communities need to get through the week. across the U.S. a growing number of people live in ‘food deserts’ which means they don’t have access to healthy and affordable food within walking or biking distance of their home.

stockbox grocers responds to this need with a miniature grocery that’s tucked inside a reclaimed shipping container and placed into the parking lot of an existing business. innovating on the espresso stand model to build stores throughout urban communities, and provide fresh produce and grocery staples to those who currently without access to good food, where they live.
