We are pouring our hearts out to Clintonville and to Columbus! Help stop possible development on the site of the Eagle Family Candy shop.
In 1946, my grandparents, John and Deloris Eagle moved Eagle Candy to the Clintonville area. My grandfather built the shop around the machinery and provided quality family-made candy to the Clintonville area. My parents, Robert and Mary Eagle, took over the business in 1986, keeping the family in the business.
In 2012, my husband James and I took over the business, and assumed the rent on the building. We love being in Clintonville and providing our homemade candies for the residents of Columbus, and specifically Clintonville. We still use the same equipment, some dated back to 1914, and the same recipes to produce our one-of-a-kind, homemade candy.
We are faced with a very tough decision. We have been given a very short deadline (30 days) to raise money to purchase the building from the building owners or it will be placed on the open market. As we have seen in Clintonville, any land is being eyed for high rise development.
WE WANT TO STAY in Clintonville! WE WANT TO STAY IN BUSINESS!
ANY amount will help. All donations will be used to help cover costs to purchase the property at 4592 N High Street and the property at 4590 N High Street.
This is very hard for us to do. We have never asked for help before. However, the candy shop means so much to us and we will do ANYTHING to keep it in the family.
Please share to help us meet our goal in such a short time frame.
HELP A FAMILY-OWNED BUSINESS STAY IN BUSINESS AND HELP STOP FURTHER HIGH-RISE DEVELOPMENT IN CLINTONVILLE!
