First Hill, Seattle
Capitol Hill Blog
When word got out we were looking at the neighborhood as a possible location for a new Stockbox, we were pretty immediately swarmed with community support from people on First Hill.
Carrie Ferrence and Jacqueline Gjurgevich started small… very small. Their first store – an experiment in providing good, nutritious food in urban food deserts – was housed in a shipping container in the Delridge neighborhood. Carrie and Jacqueline have since opened stores in South Park and First Hill with the First Hill store is by the far the largest to date. Mētis had the good fortune to work alongside Carrie, Jacqueline, and Mark Wolf of Wolf Design on a concept appropriate to the larger space. In contrast to their earlier stores, the new space has a light, airy and inviting feel that fits Carrie’s and Jacqueline’s goal of establishing Stockbox as a neighborhood hub.
