Top Shelf Cookies is finally setting up shop in Dorchester, after six years of selling Boston-inspired baked goods online.

The new location will open as early as October at 516 Gallivan Blvd. and offer 12 flavors a day, including classic favorites like Black & Golds, fluffernutters, and apple crisp. Ice cream sandwiches and vanilla frappes are also on the planned menu.

CEO and founder Heather Yunger signed the lease in late July after running a successful crowd-funded investment campaign through Mainvest. Launched almost two months ago, the effort collected scores of investors who raised more than $86,000 to date — far past Yunger’s $60,000 minimal goal.

In fact, this is the fourth time Yunger has tried to make a Top Shelf storefront a reality.

“Three times we’ve tried for our own space and it hasn’t worked out,” she wrote in a Mainvest update. “Each time, it hurt worse — it made me doubt myself. But, I can tell you that I don’t honestly believe that we would have survived in the spaces we tried for.”
