Launching the First Class of The Commons

After announcing our store closures in March due to Covid-19, we, and the rest of the world, were trying to figure out what life would look like when we reopened our doors. Utilizing what we had in our back pocket, space and a platform, the idea for The Commons was born. 

The Commons provides free retail space, kitchens, and a platform to work with brands, chefs, musicians, and artists who were hit hard due to Covid-19. There will be several rotating classes, with many participants unique to each Neighborhood Goods location and often reflecting the community that surrounds each of our stores. 

We want to provide a platform for all in an effort to offer an avenue back to normalcy; a place for people to come together, safely, in support of their community. 

We also recognize this first class represents the minimum of the Black-owned and diverse brands and artists that we would love to have in The Commons. We’re actively seeking BIPOC-owned brands and artists to include in our brand lineup. That said, if you have any suggestions we would love to hear from you, please apply or nominate them for free space in our stores.

Small businesses, local restaurateurs, and emerging artists create a distinct fingerprint in every community and we are very excited to introduce you to all of the incredible humans that will be a part of The Commons in the coming months. Our space, staff, fixtures, and furnishings are all provided for free for those involved to help reinvigorate their business. All we ask is a small percentage of sales in return. 

We’re proud to introduce you to the First Class of The Commons, and since they’re only going to be with us for a limited time, make sure you give them as much love as you can:
