Come check out the new shop, and please spread the word that BIG BROTHER IS BACK!
Kenny and Sarah
Edited to add: Please do not send any more donations-- with everyone's generous support, Kenny has been able to restart and does not need more donations--I am only updating this campaign to keep everyone in the loop on his progress :) (Sarah, aka Big Sister)
Good news: Kenny has found a new location for the shop! He has a lease and moved the inventory, and is now in the process of putting it all together. It's a really cool brick building just a couple of blocks from the old location. Right now it's a big mess and he's only open Wednesdays for savers, but it looks like he will be able to reopen for business full time in a few weeks, after a bunch of construction and modification that the unit needs.
YOUR SUPPORT has made this possible!! Thank you so much once again. Kenny is working night and day to get his dream back up off the ground.
We are planning a GRAND REOPENING event on September 9th to thank his customers and supporters--please save the date and make sure to attend! There will be gifts and giveaways, great food, and a sale to kick off the new era of Big Brother.
Location: 920 20th St. (Cross St J)
I will be sending a small token of our appreciation out to all donors within the next couple of weeks.
PLEASE send your mailing address to my email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks again! We will post an update once the smaller popup shop is open for business.
Hey guys, since there is a question about insurance, I can briefly let you know that Kenny did have a small policy--we are working hard to gather the details they need to process and review his claim to decide how much of it they will pay out, but please know that his losses are orders of magnitude larger than any possible payout he will get from his teeny policy. Your donations are AMAZING and are going to help him survive this, rebuild, and hopefully be back in business as soon as possible! Thank you all for the comments, support, and manual labor! :)
honestly john m sanders you outta pocket for your comment, it a lil sideways the way you said it kenny needs donations not hidden agenda critique for you , kennys one of the best in the comic book biz , when the comics shop in k street closed down (because of a crooked owner) he took it upon himself to be the better man and really opened his new comic shop from the ground up , to have this happen is bad = kenny fuck the comic books im glad you are alive,never told you but you were a inspiration for me starting my business seen you do it and be successful , i hope to get a store front like you and remember fam, you did this from the ground up = you can do it again my ninja #stayblessed
