‘Renton-In-A-Box’, event aims to give you a taste of some of downtown’s best small businesses.

Events in February and March will give participants a bundled gift box and access to a virtual event

The Renton Downtown Partnership is collaborating to put a taste of some of Renton’s best businesses into a boxed bundle with its “Renton-In-A-Box,” and pair it with a virtual event.

RDP, founding board member, Jon Glenn, said the event’s concept which debuted last year was intended as a direct and simple way to support some of Renton’s small businesses during what was a tumultuous time for many local shops.

Glenn said last Fall’s pilot event for “Renton-In-A-Box,” was an opportunity to “remind people of what it was like to be downtown again,”.

The first event on Feb. 20th, is called the “date night,” box and includes a dinner and dessert for two as well as a bottle of wine.

Glenn said he could not elaborate on exactly what will be in the box as he did not want to ruin the surprise, but he did say it includes products from River Valley Cheese, Boon Boona Coffee, Urban Sprouts, Dubtown Brewing, Sweet P Beauty and Drum Roll Wine.

Glenn said the purchasers of the bundle will also gain access to a virtual “date night,” event.

On March 27th, an additional box bundle and virtual event will be held celebrating “Women in Business,”.

The boxed bundle includes products from New Zen Japanese Restaurant, Puget Sound Cider Company, Common Ground Coffee & Cupcakes, Wyldwood Creative, and The Rose Gift House & Coffee.

Glenn said the virtual event paired with the gift box will feature comedienne Monica Nevi, a panel discussion among female business owners, and a beauty tutorial from Blue Door Skin Studio.
