Keep a look out for C3 MOVING SALES
We need to consolidate and move product from now until we move. This is a great way to stock up on a wide variety of materials and help us lighten our load! Our sale posting are on the calendar below and will be on Facebook and Twitter so be sure to sign up for these social media sites.
A note about the move…
While we are pleased of what the C3 Raise the Roof Campaign accomplished, the collective total is just a drop in the bucket. Commercial real estate is expensive! We need the support of our community now more than ever. As of date, C3 has yet to negotiate a lease with a prospective landlord. While we have a few irons in the fire and will likely be able to announce our grand reopening by 1 November, there will be a gap in our physical operation. We will also be offering a variety of mobile programming options while we are in between locations.
Where to find us while we move…
- Kids Together Walk Run & Roll for Inclusiveness, sponsored by the Town of Cary, Sat., 9-20-14.
- Downtown Harvest Festival sponsored by Heart of Cary Association, Sat., 10-18-14.
- Day in Downtown sponsored by Fuquay Varina Chamber of Commerce, Sat., 11-1-14.
Congratulations to us…
Recently we were in the Raleigh Walter Magazine in their Whirl feature which is a collection of party pictures from various fundraisers and community events. We were in the September 2014 issue? Pick up a copy today for some fun pictures from the Make Art, Not Waste Bohemian Bash held July, 2014.
Did you see us on USA TODAY on-line we did a video for Martin Luther King Day. Videos were to tell about what you think King would be telling people today. Ours was about the need for reduce, reuse, recycle for our generation.
Did you see us on ABC 11? People creating birdhouses were filmed making them for the birdhouse competition at the NC State Arboretum.
We have been given two awards in the retail sector category of the Triangle Green Business Challenge. We are in the company of major corporations like IBM, so we not only talk the talk, but walk the walk!
