City CoPilot Year in Review!

12balldrop

 

We are closing in on the end of the year. It’s a time for reflection on 2014 and planning for 2015. It’s a time for family and friends to celebrate, commiserate and contemplate. That being said, City CoPilot likes to keep it light, so we are going to stick to celebrate.

When the ball drops City CoPilot’s flagship store will have turned the lights on for just the 82nd time – 82 days doesn’t seem like a long time but when we start to reflect on Q4 of 2014 we have learned A LOT including….
 
  • NYC really IS a small town: New York can be a nice and safe place – further the Lower East Side is a true community – we have connected with more neighbors in the last three months at our storefront than we have the last 6 years living on Orchard street (and we go out a lot..so that’s saying A LOT)
  • Travel light: Baggage / Luggage weighs you down – when traveling through life or just a busy city it is best to do it hands free. It doesn’t matter if it is a soul crushing job or a bad relationship – we are taking a nod from one of our favorite girl power movies of the year Frozen.. to just “Let it go” – especially since it is almost January you don’t need all of that stuff – Store your bags and bikes with us!
  • Sharing is caring: Whether it is a handcart, drill or your own apartment; sharing stuff makes less clutter, saves money and connects people – so we are all for facilitating the Sharing Economy.
  • Nothing can replace people: Yes, people make mistakes and have bad days… But we would all get lonely (and mislead) if we only picked up our packages from Amazon lockers or got directions only from Google maps. It wouldn’t just be a lonely planet but sterile and impersonal.

We’re not just celebratory but thankful for all of our customers: over 100 now! That’s more than 1 new customer a day, but who is counting? The CoPilots look forward to serving you in 2015 – whether it’s accepting a package, exchanging a key or overnighting your passport  – we are here to help!
New York City may not be your home base, or a place you see making your home, but while you are here, City CoPilot will always treat you like family so you don’t feel too far from home.
 
Enough of the sappiness…
