Pour House Hurricane Flo Repair

Hey everyone, my name is Joe Apkarian and I own The Pour House in downtown Wilmington. The little basement bar that so many different characters call home.

So The Pour House has been shut down now over a week, we have sustained water, electric and some appliance damage from Hurricane Florence. We’ve lost a lot of beer and such due to the temps and we are still paying our bills and taxes with our saved funds but with nothing coming in and continued flooding we are in a bit of trouble.

Any help is  greatly appreciated, and if you can’t, no worries, everyone is dealing with damages right now.
Money will be used on:
Water damage
Professional cleaning to fight mold damage
Money to staff who have been out of work
Service to and replacement of keg coolers
new sump pumps

Do we have insurance? Yes, we do, however it will not cover everything and no idea when that will be handled.

Don’t we have money saved? We did, it’s running out.

Thank you very much,

Joe Apkarian
