Save Royal Beauty Supply #supportblackbusiness

On Wednesday July 15, our family business – Royal Beauty Supply in Stockton, CA – was served with an eviction notice by the sheriff’s department. With all that has transpired regarding COVID-19, we had no choice but to close our doors between the months of March, April and May. Of course, during this time, income for the business came to a swift halt and yet the fees for our rental unit did not. As the rental fees continued to pile, to add to the financial burden caused by COVID, we had recently relocated our shop to another rental property not far from the original location. This ended up having a tremendous impact on our sales, as it has taken nearly a year for our core customer base to become aware of our relocation and for the word to spread. Unfortunately, while we’ve put every effort to, we have not been able to access any of the government-issued loans that are supposed to be made available to small businesses at this time. We have been servicing Stockton’s community (and most especially Stockton’s Black community) for over 20 years, and we would like to keep doing so for as long as we can. The funds raised will be used directly and specifically to pay the rent balance and attorney’s fees in order to put a halt to the eviction. We will need access to the funds no later than Wednesday, July 29th, 2020 in order to keep our doors open. Support from our community and those who #supportblackbusiness at this time would mean more to us than words can express. We would be so truly grateful. Thank you all. The Fagbamila Family
