Laura Weiss is packing it in. Or perhaps it’s more appropriate to say she’s packing it out.
Weiss is the founder of GO Box, a Portland-based reusable takeout container business. For the past seven years Weiss and her cargo bike full of Go Boxes have been a familiar sight downtown and in central city neighborhoods.
She sold the business in May and this summer is moving to Bellingham.* “After 20 years in Portland,” she says, “it’s time for a change.” Her husband retired recently, and the couple wanted to live in a smaller town.
The new owner is Jocelyn Gaudi, a former marketing staffer for Portland Design Works and Alta Bike Share.
