The specific reason to launch a GoFundMe page is to create awareness in the community that SALON INA is in jeopardy of closure.
Salon Ina has experienced hardship because of the COVID 19 PANDEMIC. Our salon experienced that appointments were being cancelled, guests were not having parties, social outings stopped, guests were in quarantine and the booked services dropped dramatically because of COVID 19. We are now facing very challenging times.
Salon Ina felt the impact of the Pandemic before we ever closed. The stay at home order included our business and we were closed from March 18th to June 18th of 2020. Salon Ina’s expenses did not stop accumulating and the cost has continued to compound every month. We have fallen behind on the lease and have a deadline of October 1, 2021 to pay what is owed. We are appealing to our community to help support #SavingSalonIna and #keepSalonInaGoing.
Here is what has helped us so far:
We were fortunate to receive the PPP loans and with the support of online purchases, pay our employees, pay utilities, purchase supplies and products, and pay a portion to the lease. We have extended our hours, added online booking options, created a stronger communication with our guests and continue with our level of excellence and service and cleanliness.
Salon Ina is a destination and place where all is welcome. We greet you with a smile and our goal is offer a great experience while having your services in our Salon as well as creating an environment that is warm and pampered. We want the opportunity to give back and pay it forward through employing students of Trillium, hiring newly licensed Cosmetologist and Estheticians. We want to create opportunities for professionals that have a passion for the beauty industry and want to serve the guests of Salon Ina. Our team is a family that serves each other with kindness.
We have exhausted every avenue we can take to help our company stay afloat and we have come to this point and need your help.
Here is what we need: We need $43,184.18 and ALL of the donations will go directly to paying the balance owed. This cost did not happen overnight and is an accumulative of NNN, repairs needed for water damage and repairs needed for the furnace.
Please help us #keepSalonInaGoing and share this!! We want #SavingSalonIna to be more than just an ask but a crusade to help save others as well.
