‘An Avenue Back to Normalcy’: Neighborhood Goods Plans Free Store Space for Businesses Affected by COVID-19

The Commons by Neighborhood Goods plans to provide a free platform for local and national brands, restaurants, musicians, and artists who have been negatively impacted by the pandemic.

Neighborhood Goods, which has its flagship store in Plano, has opened applications for free space at its brick-and-mortar locations once they’re able to reopen. 

Whether a business has been affected by wholesale orders being canceled, revenue or logistics being disrupted, or other issues resulting from COVID-19, The Commons is accepting applications from any businesses that can’t “weather the COVID-19 storm.” In return for supplying brands with Neighborhood Goods’ space, staff, fixtures, and furnishings for free, the experiential retailer is asking for a small percentage of a brand’s sales relative to the company’s size and product type.

For restaurateurs, Neighborhood Goods is opening its kitchens to offer pop-up versions of restaurants in-store. The Commons also plans to support local creatives by hosting musicians and placing work from local artists on its stores’ walls.

It also intends to host job fairs for local employers and communal events to bring people back together once it’s safe to do so.

“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,” Neighborhood Goods says.

The retailer says it’ll be unveiling more new initiatives, sponsors, and collaborations in the coming weeks.
