Gift store with philanthropic mission opens at Chesterfield Towne Center

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — BoxLunch, a pop culture gift store with a cause, announced that it will open its newest location in Richmond, VA on Wednesday, June 28 at Chesterfield Towne Center.

BoxLunch offers a thoughtfully curated selection of the world’s most popular licensed shirts, accessories, collectibles, beauty, home goods and gift and novelty merchandise for everyone from the most dedicated fan to the more casual pop culture enthusiast.

The new store will celebrate its grand opening weekend Saturday, July 1 through Sunday, July 2 from 12-4 p.m., with DJs spinning live music, in-store giveaways and trivia games.

To fulfill its civic mission of “Get Some. Give Back”, BoxLunch will donate one meal to Feeding America® for every $10 spent in-store or online. BoxLunch is proud to support national hunger-relief efforts as well as local efforts through Feeding America’s nationwide network of food banks, including the Richmond area FeedMore, which will directly receive a percentage of the donations raised at the Chesterfield Towne Center BoxLunch store.

“We are thrilled to bring BoxLunch to the Richmond community. Our mission is simple, sell the best product and use our business to inspire and implement solutions to help fight the hunger crisis on both a local and national level,” said Robert Thomsen, Vice President, General Manager of Merchandising and Marketing, BoxLunch.

“BoxLunch retail storefronts across the country provide a way for the general public to be exposed to hunger relief and offer a means for their customers to easily give back through their purchases. This support has already translated into more than seven million meals donated to provide hope to families facing hunger in the United States and we are honored to have been selected as their charity of choice,” said Nancy Curby, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships and Operations, Feeding America.
