Brooklyn Creative League has been in Gowanus for over ten years, and during this time, we’ve come to know plenty of businesses in the area that truly come in handy for small business owners. We’ve rounded up a few locations that might be helpful for those times when you’re in a pinch and need some quick services. Check out some of these helpful places in our list below.

The Mail Room

534 3rd Avenue

The Mail Room is a full-scale shipping store specializing in international and domestic transportation via all major carriers such as FEDEX, USPS, DHL, etc. They mention that they offer a wide range of packaging supplies and can professionally pack any item you may have. It’s also a nice perk that they’re family owned and operated, so if we can’t meet your shipping needs, you may want to check them out.

219 5th Ave

Need repairs for your computer, tablet, or phone? The Geek Shop claims to offer reliable and cost-efficient in-shop and on-site technical support. If you need hardware upgrades and virus cleanups, or have complex network issues, their onsite computer support technicians can actually come to you.
