"When Tomorrow Isn't Soon Enough"
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. - Gandhi
We chose to create a business that would create real-time connectivity between local merchants and the communities with which they depend upon their patronage. We believe that there is a better way to link the needs of those in our communities with the availability of goods and services that are within that proximity. We believe in providing services that level the playing field for those that are competing with many organizations that are many times larger than what one may represent locally.
- We want to empower the individual consumer with the power of choice (what they want, from where they want it, when they want it, and how they want to receive it..).
- We want to empower the individual to take an active role in enabling the core service by providing on demand last mile delivery logistics to those merchants that currently have no way to compete with large multinational e-commerce players with well established infrastructures and economies of scale that result in a significant competitive advantage if left unbalanced.
- We believe that all local businesses have a moral, social, environmental and ethical responsibility to their communities as do those same communities have an equal responsibility to support their local businesses...
