New Front Windows & Door

We are a small group of friends (Madi Trizis, Robbie Crane, Cameron & Carter) in the Des Moines, IA area with a new store called The Collective that opened on August 11th, 2019 located at 1707 E Grand Ave. We built this store from the ground up with no outside help, no loans, no investors working multiple full time jobs to fund our dream. Unfortunately, on Small Business Saturday this year, some person decided to shatter our dreams & 15 months of hard work after the store closed for the day. We arrived Sunday morning to find all 3 of our front windows and our glass door spider-web shattered, with no evidence of the perpetrator. Our glass-break sensor did not go off, our alarm system was not triggered, and we cannot find any footage of someone committing the crime.  Our little store does not have the funds for the expensive repair and we are seeking any help we can to keep our dream alive. Our goal is to fix these windows to be able to continue operations until we can save enough money to move to a better location.

Thank you to anyone who can help in any way.

- Madi & Robbie
