We have been shut down all April and March was very slow as well. Now coming into the month of May we have no more money. We are out of options and rent is due in 1 week.
The mall owner has required us to make our monthly rent even when we'er closed. We didn't qualify for any covid-19 loans. I wont get into that but it was total BS.
We want to stay afloat. We just started to get things going. But now Everything is starting to fall apart and we feel the pressure of everything falling down. I'm scared about this. I don't know how I will pay anything.
We're willing to turn any donation into store credit if you choose. Anything will help.
All the money will go for debts and rent. It will help keep the store going. My fear is we will not recover in time to stay afloat. Its hard to predict when people will want to start buying again. We need the help ASAP.
As a store owner. I have felt the pressure of running a store. But not like this where everything falling down around me. I can't sleep at night. I stare at ebay and wish people would buy something. But so many other people are in the same boat. I do not like charity. I don't like asking people to give up there hard earned money for me.
I over came a lot. I lost my Gf, BF, Mother and Brother all in a year. Than I got sick and had to go on Disability for awhile. Than my step brother stole everything i owned. But even after all that. 2 years ago I dropped my Disability and opened Ravens relics. This store is literally all I have left.
The store keeps me going. Gives me purpose and i get to meet a lot of cool people. I don't know what I would do with out it.
Thanks for reading this far. if you can help. we would surely appreciate it.
