Dear Community, we're writing to inform you that Bloc is going to be taking an extended period of rest in 2022, pausing retail sales on the site as of December 31, 2021.

We founded Bloc in March 202 with a dual mission – (1) to support our local businesses and communities by keeping purchasing local; and (2) to impact climate change and street safety by providing sustainable delivery. It has been a wild ride for all of us over the past 1.5 years, and we need to rest and regroup to consider the future direction for Bloc.

In the 1.5 years of operations to date, we have delivered flowers, coffee, cupcakes, groceries, recycled bottles, gifts, calendars, and so much more around Philadelphia and Collingswood. We put about 10,000 miles on our e-cargo bikes. We met so many amazing business owners and community members who believe in shopping locally.

To ensure the success of our mission, we need to take some time to recalibrate so Bloc can have a greater impact on changing consumer habits away from the Amazons of the world that are threatening the sustainability of our local communities.

We welcome input, ideas, conversation and feedback in this time of rest and contemplation, and thank you
all for your support. Please feel free to shoot us a message at

Alison Cohen and Jenn Grega, Bloc founders
