Brief

In the midst of the retail apocalypse, small businesses are soaring. We can adapt at the drop of a hat, get one on one feedback directly from customers and quickly curate our stock to cater to our unique, ever-shifting market. Founded in 2011, The Fuzzy Pineapple, LLC. is expanding into an omnichannel (storefront and online) shop that showcases a curated selection of local handmade goods from the immediate Tallahassee area and treasures from abroad. It will be a whimsical, colorful, pineapple paradise catering to those who are on-the-go, quirky, and carefree. It will also be inclusive of the clothing (XS-3XL+) and shoe sizes (5-11+) often left out in the Tallahassee market. While shopping and supporting local artists, customers can shop items linked directly to local charities and fundraisers. We will also provide custom product services through our customization apps on our online marketplace using dtg and embroidery machines. Monthly events such as pop-up shops will showcase emerging artists, while classes and workshops bring culture and fun. Proceeds from each sale will also go toward our annual festival, TFP FEST, and other community focused projects such as TFP Small Business Expo, TFP Give Back Fund and TFP Scholarship Fund, celebrating and encouraging small businesses, student artists, and local artists.
