Hey folks. As many of you know, one of our favorite spots has suffered some extensive water damage due to a neighboring construction site. They have had to close their doors for an undetermined amount of time. The insurance company seems to think that staff are replaceable, but these people are like family to many, many people. I would like to help them out but getting their wages/tips covered so they can live for the next month or so. In the event that they end up covered by insurance, I will choose a local charity and donate all funds on behalf of the pub. Thank you for your support.
ADDED: BELOW SHOWS THE TYPE OF PEOPLE THAT YOU ARE SUPPORTING (WRITTEN BY DEBBIE, OWNER/OPERATOR OF THE PUB)
As you may have heard, Staggers Pub has been a victim of a little bad luck. We have some construction and repairs to do due to a roof issue and water damage inside the restaurant. During this time, my team has been going crazy of boredom. They came up with an idea that makes me proud to spearhead such a community minded group of people. We all know the struggles of being a business owner and operator. My team wants to offer any Downtown Dartmouth business their indivual or collective free labour. This means to help have time for banking, cleaning, running to pick up children etc without having to worry about closing your door to a potential sale. As an owner there are times when just getting to the washroom is a struggle. My staff can help in many departments and with many things. Please reach out to me and I will give you the best staff for the task. Thank you for all the support Staggers has been given. I look forward to a reopening when work is completed. Please reach out for any service you may need free of charge to give you a break.

As the staff are trying hard to be able to continue as a team with Staggers upon its reopen a wonderful soul in our community has started a gofund me page. As of right now the insurance companies consider staff in the bar industry replaceable, therefore no salaries are insurable. If you could share this page and help in any way you can I, and our community would be forever grateful.
