One Month of Supplies

Finding out what’s in stock, where.

5/4/2020

Last month, we launched OurStreets Supplies to help neighbors share what’s in stock to make shopping trips safer and more efficient. It has been an incredible experience for our small team.

We got curious and started digging into the data. We were impressed with some of the stats from our first month.

🇺🇸 People in all 50 states shared with OurStreets last monthThey shared an incredible 22,345 times! Every time you share what’s in stock with OurStreets, you make it easier and safer for the people around you to find groceries and essential supplies.

⬅️➡️ With OurStreets, you also help the most vulnerable people avoid crowded stores or stores that are not encouraging social distancing when you share social distancing information. Of the more than 2,000 individual stores that OurStreets users shopped at last month, 9% did not have the space or encourage social distancing. Remember, six feet can save lives!

🧻 One every-day item has been searched for and shared the most. Whether you’re an over-the-roll or under-the-roll person, TP is the crown prince of necessity right now.
