The Street Store was created by Maximilian Pazak and Kayli Vee Levitan with the support of the agency they work at, M&C Saatchi Abel Cape Town, South Africa. It was founded in January 2014, in partnership with their client, the Haven Night Shelter.
However, as homelessness is not a South African problem, they decided to make the idea open-source. Now anyone can run a street store. We hope that you’ll be one of them.
