I love Franklin Goose and I know many of my fans and followers do also, so I wanted to tell you all about its Grand Opening!!
Franklin Goose is excited to announce the expansion of its eco-friendly baby and child web store to its new Carytown address. Franklin Goose sells quality toys, clothing, baby gear, bedding, furniture, nursery items, diapers, feeding supplies, and household products that surpass their eco-friendly safety promise.
Everything about the new Franklin Goose storefront is eco-friendly, even down to its CFL light bulbs and dual flow bath toilets. The Franklin Goose building was built in the early 1900s and was previously an art gallery. Pieces of the original building still remain, and those that Franklin Goose took down will be recycled through the Ace Recycling building construction debris company. All of the wall and floor paints used are no or low VOCs. Even the Franklin Goose displays are all reclaimed from the Richmond area. There are also plans to have a garden, a composting area, and a rain barrel. Franklin Goose takes the 3 R’s (reduce, reuse, recycle) to the next level.
What makes Franklin Goose so unique is that they are more than just a store- they are a community. Franklin Goose started out by giving $5 credits for every product review its customers made in March. Almost 1 million dollars in store credit was issued, helping thousands of families afford cloth diapering and other organic luxuries they couldn’t purchase before. Now, they have moved into our neighborhood and are ready to reach out to Richmond.
Franklin Goose will have ongoing group meetings in their upstairs Community Room. There will be diaper swaps, speakers, natural parenting classes, recycled art projects, and even talks given by eco-friendly merchants. Kozy Carrier will be talking about baby wearing on September 18. Franklin Goose would love to help assist any natural, organic, and eco-friendly parenting groups, so please stop by and say hello.
Franklin Goose offers more than just your average baby store. They have an online gift registry, which if you come into the store, they will help you set up and even email to your friends and family. They will have someone there who can assist you in making the right choices for your family’s needs. Whether your registry be for a new baby, birthday, or holiday shopping, Franklin Goose will make sure your needs are met.
You will also be able to call and schedule an appointment to discuss your natural choices for any age child, just like a personal shopper. If you are in a hurry, just had a baby, or have more than one child and it’s hard to shop, you can call ahead to place your order and a Franklin Goose employee will meet you curbside with your purchase.
The Franklin Goose grand opening is set for October 1. The staff looks forward to meeting the community, so please stop by and introduce yourself prior to the opening. Or give a big HONK HONK when you pass by their 3401 W Cary address. If you aren't in the area, head over to Franklin Goose Facebook and wish this luck as they start this new journey!
