At Coalwork we somewhat recently began offering $5 Fridays. A chance to come in and work for just $5 (regularly $15).
And today was the first day that someone officially took us up on the offer. In fact, two people — one from about 45 minutes away — popped in.
Scranton has never seen coworking. From our experience the people of Scranton haven’t either. The vast majority of people that have stopped in to see what Coalwork is all about have never even heard of coworking. But, those from elsewhere know exactly what it is.
We have a long way to go.
