Locally Obsessed - Fraser Valley Subscription Box

About Locally Obsessed.png

Locally Obsessed is a subscription box company that caters to local communities in the Fraser Valley. It was started by Nicole Meredith, who has lived with her family in Chilliwack for over a decade.

Wanting to combine a love of local shopping and a desire to be more deliberate with her consumption, Nicole realized that there was room for a new service in her community.

The goal of Locally Obsessed is to give people an easier way to sample local products and services that they might not normally encounter in their normal shopping. The original plan was to offer a subscription box of Chilliwack based products and services exclusively for Chilliwack residents.

After a very successful launch, she has expanded to include local boxes from one end of the Valley to the other, Locally Obsessed delivers from Chilliwack to Port Moody sourcing products from Chilliwack, Abbotsford and Surrey.

Each month, the boxes are hand delivered, which cuts down on shipping costs and lets her offer perishables. Business of all sizes have been featured, from up and coming to the most established and a local business is highlighted each month in a blog post on the website.

 

The website (www.locallyobsessed.com) also maintains a list of all the products offered in past subscription boxes, with information on where they can be re-purchased when customers are looking to repurchase.

Valley Living Design

My name's Caprice, I live in Chilliwack BC, and am married to the best hubby in the world. 

I love all things outdoors and love to keep exploring. My dad and I started up this little side business (aka Valley Living Design) because he's a super talented trades guy and I love keeping home decor rustic but stylish. And to be honest, it's a great excuse to spend more time with family. 

We specialize in honeycomb shelves and mountain shelves, but recently we've put those two together to create our signature item, the 2ft honeycomb mountain shelf!


I hope that you'll give us a chance to create a really unique and amazing piece for your home and as always - thanks for shopping local!
