First Hill FAQ

Stockbox First Hill GroceryWe’ve received a lot of emails over the past few weeks, filled with questions about the Stockbox First Hill Grocery. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions, along with our responses. Don’t forget to let us know what other questions you have!
Will Stockbox have lunch and breakfast options?
Absolutely. We are working to expand our selection of prepared options for our First Hill store, which will include a rotating selection of sandwiches, salads, and meals. We are also looking into options that can be easily heated up for a warm meal. And, of course, we’ll have a selection of yogurt, fruit, and snacks to get you in between those meals and we’ll also offer an assortment of fresh coffee, baked goods, and grab-and-go breakfast options for your morning needs!
Will Stockbox sell beer and wine?
Yes. We believe beer and wine can be an integral part of the meal experience, so we will offer a selection of red wine, white wine, and beer. The selection will include a mix of micro-brews, local suppliers, and more mainstream favorites. However, we won’t sell 40’s or other malt liquor options, so that we can continue to focus on meal-oriented inventory.
Will we have organic products?
We try to offer our customers a choice, so our inventory includes mainstream brands, alongside organic, gluten-free, and local options! If you have specific concerns or requests in this area, please make sure to complete the request form on the First Hill page on our website.
What’s our pricing like?

Even though we are a small store, we are dedicated to keeping our pricing fair and accessible. For our local and prepared options: our pricing is competitive with local alternatives. For our mainstream options: we are priced a few percentage points above Safeway, which means we are still cheaper than a lot of other alternatives.
Do we take EBT?
Yes, do we do take EBT! We are also working to be able to accept WIC, but it is a long and arduous process.
How can I help?
We have had a lot of neighbors step up and offer their assistance – thank you all for the warm welcome! And, for those of you looking for an easy way to show your support, Stockbox is looking for volunteers to help us get the word out at their workplace, apartment building, or condo. It requires a pretty minimal commitment, so if you’re interested in being your building’s Stockbox ambassador, please contact
And, of course, you can always help out by shopping at Stockbox when we open in late August!
