We were scheduled to open in March of 2020, but because of Covid and the subsequent lockdowns, we had to delay our opening to late Fall 2020. Because we were a new business in 2020, we don’t qualify for any government relief programs; No Rent subsidy, No Wage subsidy, and No 40K CEBA loan. We are still required to pay full rent even during these lockdowns.
I have put my life savings into this project, at the same time losing all my regular income as I work in the events industry.
We are still being asked to pay full rent while being in lockdown and won't be able to stay open much longer. We won’t be able to show everyone the beautiful space we have created.
Any and every donation helps keep our doors open; we want to stay afloat so that one day, hopefully soon, we can go back to normal and drink and eat and enjoy life together!
I urge you to adopt CFIB's "Small Business First" strategy allowing small businesses to reopen with strict capacity limits.
