We are not giving up though. So we are hoping the super market does not have to be the end of the Bakery, just a change in location. It does cost a lot of money to move and build out a new building, as I'm sure you all know. I had a hard time considering this option to try and raise funds for my Mom (Georgie) and her Bakery but you all convinced me. We dont like to ask for anything from anyone for free, so it was hard to get to this point. But it touches my heart to know how much you all care about the Bakery and thus my Mother. I know she is too. I had to beg her to do this so we could possibly start the build out soon while waiting to see if the SBA loan comes through.
She is heart broken at the thought of losing the Bakery. She truely loves each and ever customer that has come into the Bakery, once or, for some, every day :). Most of you see the pictures of the, once babies sitting on the counter, now off in college or have their own kids who come in.
So, to keep you all posted. We have leveraged what we have to come up with the money to buy a location to move the Bakery (very close, across street) but we are trying to get a business loan to build it out to support the Bakery. As I'm sure you know it takes time and well time is not really what we have if we want to be back in business before the Holidays. To finsh we really need to start the process now.
I know the number is large but anything would help, because it woud lower the loan amount and maybe get approved faster. I don't know if this will work but my mom (Georgette Goodale), the Bakery, town, and all of you are worth it to me to try. I promise you we will have a grand opening if this works :) I'll talk to the Navy and fly there, where ever I am. (yes still bound to the Navy, but luckily not to far away for the time being)
We will hopefully be able to track donations by name with this program, never done it before so I dont know how it works, but if we can track, we will do everything we can to pay each and every one of you back.
Thank you, from all of us.
