Rumors Boutique

During the riots last night, Rumors Boutique was damaged along with several other local and minority-owned businesses located on Broad Street. 

Our windows and door have been smashed and vandalized. It has been an uphill battle trying to survive as a business during COVID 19. After the damage last night, it feels like we are trying to climb that hill with broken limbs and bleeding fingers.

Today is Rumors Boutique's 13th anniversary. Rumors Boutique is a minority-owned and operated company since 2007. For the first time in 13 years, we are asking for financial help from our community to help us recover from the damage. We will exist in this community as long as the community wants us here. We will be boarding up our windows for the next few weeks until the threat has passed. Please, protesters, be safe, know that we forgive you, and you are not alone. I stand with you because I am you.
