Support St. Paul Patriot Entrepreneur

UPDATE June 2, 2020


Milan Dennie re-opened his Barbershop yesterday after over two months of being closed due due to the restrictions on businesses from COVID-19.  The donations from this page helped to keep this great business afloat. 

Tragically, his neighborhood of University Avenue in St. Paul was hit very hard by the rioters that came through last week.  

Milan shared the following message with me:


"The other night they destroyed my whole neighborhood in my face. It hurt so bad to see everything going up in flames and I couldn't do anything to stop them. I opened my shop and stood outside all night until it was over. Now we have no resources available for miles. I ordered a couple hundred loaves of bread and dozens of eggs. The good thing is I can get back to work tomorrow so I can really help. This is so crazy but I'm not letting my Neighborhood go out like that. We will rebuild. My building is ok and I will be opening tomorrow."    

Milan is helping out his community by distributing bread and eggs this Thursday, June 4th. 

Please support Milan with your business at his barbershop, and if you feel so inclined, please consider a donation to help out his Minnesota neighborhood and business.

P.S. You can connect with Milan on his Facebook page,  https://www.facebook.com/www.kingmilansbarbershop/

ORIGINAL May 4, 2020

Milan Dennie, owner of King Milan's Barber Shop in St. Paul, MN took the brave step today of re-opening his business.

Small Business in Minnesota has been shut down by Governor Tim Walz's order for seven weeks.  Businesses can no longer survive and we need to support entrepreneurs who are willing to stand up against this unfair and unjust treatment.  

This money will go directly to Mr. Dennie so that he has the funds needed for a potential legal defense and also the money needed to re-start his business safely and effectively.  

Mr. Dennie is a philanthropist who donates his services for free back-to-school haircuts for kids. 

Mr. Dennie is a brave Patriot and the first business owner to stand up for freedom in Minnesota. 

UPDATE:  St Paul Police CLOSED DOWN Mr. Dennie's business this morning:

From WCCO:  "The state could fine him $25,000. Dennie said he is aware he could lose his shop by deciding to reopen. But with bills piling up, he’s convinced he could also lose it by staying closed.

“We’re just behind by a lot. And it just seems like if we don’t start back working, we’re going to lose what we, you know, put everything into,” he said. “It’s killing us.”
