The Digest

New trade location

Safe Trade Location Fishers

Meeting a random person online can be a little scary. Especially when it’s high value transaction. The Fishers Police Station now offers a “Safe Trade Zone” where you can meet people with a little more peace. The area is monitored by cameras with a phone nearby in case you need it. Big stuff like couches will probably still need to be done outside.

Napkin math: Fishers has around 100,000 people. 90% of the US population uses the internet. 71.43% of internet users use Facebook. And 40% of Facebook users have used Facebook Marketplace. That gets us to ~25k people in Fishers who might use this space 🤯 Facebook isn’t the only marketplace, so that number could be bigger.

Sun King Brewery events always go fast. In a few weeks, they’re co-hosting a “Sips and Wicks” with Penn and Beech. You’ll make valentine’s candles while drinking craft beer. Tickets going fast here.
