People have told us that coming in to the store” brings them joy”, their “happy place”, their “go-to” store and “it must be nice to work in such a beautiful environment”. People tell us they can buy an item that is the perfect accent for a room, or gift that they are proud to present to someone. We miss our customers and their stories.
Pear-aphernalia actively supports our community whether holiday decorating for our local theater, baskets or gift certificates for school and church fundraisers, support for Holiday Home Tours, and other select charities.
We may not be considered an “essential business” but we believe we are essential to small town community survival.
Actions taken to prevent Covoid-19 has changed all of our lives and now has Pear-aphernalia in jeopardy of opening & staying in business. We have applied for funds to support small business, so far, to no avail.
While sheltering in place, we need to ensure that Pear-aphernalia can continue to cover its operating expenses (rent, utilities, insurance, etc) so that we can successfully reopen on the other side of this pandemic
We need your help! We are taking this difficult step of asking for donations. If you can not donate at this time, please share this email with friends on your social media platforms.
