A note about our shop and COVID-19

Like so many right now, we’re having to rethink our business. The Shop Around the Corner’s launch was, well, just around the corner, when COVID-19 hit and flipped the world upside down. While our original focus was on fundraising for schools (which are currently closed, as every homeschooling parent currently knows all too well), we’re still committed to giving back.

We hope you’ll shop for you and your loved ones knowing that a percentage of every purchase will go to support to The Food Bank of Waterloo Region. As well, we’re featuring several products from local businesses we love so you can support local shop-owners while you’re at it. If you live in Kitchener, Cambridge and Guelph, please use code “Local2020” for free shipping with a $30 minimum order. We offer Knock & Drop delivery.

What if you could buy the products you already need while supporting your children’s school and activities?

Our “you need it anyway” concept is super simple...

Make the everyday purchases you normally would – like coffee (first coffee), tea, and household products – and a percentage of each purchase goes directly to your organization. Our team carefully curates top quality, highly effective products, with an eco-friendly focus. The best part? You can shop year-round knowing that your everyday purchases are making a real difference.

I started The Shop Around the Corner to share great products made by great people, while helping organizations get what they need, too. Everyday items that earn valuable funds — that’s my ‘you need it anyway’ philosophy.”
