Stocked Co. offers Fernie residents alternative shopping options
Stocked Co., a sustainable refillery, offers locals a variety of environmentally conscious products from their new location in downtown Fernie.
Starting in April 2019, co-owners Kara McFall and Marcelle Clarkson hosted pop ups outside the Wildsight office and a number of other local businesses, offering locals a wide range of sustainable products.
Continuing their journey to redefine shopping in the Elk Valley, the duo opened up in their new location this past July.
“We wanted to do something good for the environment, as well as to do something good for the community, giving them an extra shopping option they didn’t have,” said McFall.
Stocked Co. is once again offering residents refills on all-purpose cleaner, bathroom cleaner, laundry soap, dish soap, hand soap, shampoo and conditioner, dish washing tabs, and baby wash.
The shop also carries refills of Routine Deodorant and other sustainable goods including beeswax wraps and vintage pieces from New Moon Goods.
All of the products found inside Stocked Co. are made in Canada, predominantly within the Elk Valley, British Columbia, or Alberta.
“Our shop isn’t for a targeted audience, refilling is for everybody. It’s a lifestyle change that comes from small steps. Even if you’re new to the concept, if anyone has questions or just wants to pop in, we encourage them to book an appointment and come see what we’re all about.”
For more information including a stock list and volunteer opportunities, as well as to book in for a visit to the shop, head to Stocked Co.’s website at stockedco.com/.
