On March 28, 2020 the Pix-O-Matic was born. Contactless 24 hour vending to serve Portland in the midst of a pandemic and shutdown of the city. Would anyone come? (Where else to go?!) Would you trust French macarons from a vending machine? Was there a demand for Michael Scott masks, rubber chickens and Moscow Mitch shot glasses all hours of the day? Would you do a happy dance at 3AM after retrieving your Amelie mousse cake and listening to “I’m Still Standing” from our pandemic play list? Pix owner (and then, again, the sole employee) Cheryl Wakerhauser bet OUI. In fact, the first Pix-O-Matic was so popular we had to buy a second machine 2 months later just to keep up with demand. The Pix-O-Matic saved Pix and we want to thank all of you for giving it a go. Please come to our birthday “party” (once again Pix-O-Matic style). The Pix-O-Matic doors will open at various days and times all weekend for free birthday cake (sparkler included!) While you are there, share your favorite Pix memory by submitting it in the memory box…because someone else is turning 20 this year.
