Now, DreamHaven needs your help.
After the murder by police of George Floyd, Minneapolis was gripped by a terrible series of riots, vandalism and looting. Under the guise of peaceful protesting, some individuals took advantage of a chaotic situation to do serious damage to hundreds of businesses in the area.
Early Saturday morning, May 30th a group of young males drove up, smashed the front door, entered the store and ransacked the building. They broke glass, toppled shelves, threw things around and took what they could carry before neighbors frightened them off. They tried to start a fire but luckily they were incompetent arsonists. The fire went out.
So many lost so much. To be honest, our need is smaller than many, but there is still need. Insurance will cover some of the costs, many of which we're not even aware of yet. We're replacing what was lost, repairing what was broken. We'll be closed for a short time yet, but things are moving quickly and I hope we can re-open very soon.
I am the owner, Greg Ketter, and I'm a very proud person (I've turned into my father) and asking for help is not something I'm comfortable doing. People have already shown me incredible kindnesses and offers of help and I can't tell you how much that means to me. The messages of love and concern, of how much my store has meant to people, have touched me tremendously. I am truly blessed and I thank you all. Please be safe.
