CHANGE THE GAME AT CHECKOUT

The Good Pour donates a portion of its profits from every transaction.

Targeting conscious consumers, The Good Pour developed the BOHO (Buy One, Help One) app, allowing customers to dictate where their donations go and track their personal contributions as well as those from The Good Pour, creating an additional level of transparency. To further support this commitment to various charities, the store features adaptable spaces designed to showcase different organizations and causes, ensuring the design remains relevant and impactful over time.

FUNCTIONALITY MEETS STORYTELLING

Strategic environmental graphics combine practicality with an enriched customer experience.

The environmental graphics serve multiple functions, acting as both a finishing touch and a method of storytelling that helps define the new brand. The signage not only communicates merchandise offerings and pricing but also conveys the deeper meaning of the brand by explaining the philanthropic process behind each purchase.

REAL-TIME GIVING

The Pour Board is a digital display with purpose.

The Pour Board shows the current charities and the amounts donated to each. Linked to the POS system, it updates in real-time with each donation. Positioned between the sales floor and the gifting area, shoppers can catch a glimpse immediately upon entry.
