Twice Upon A Time #saveourstore

Twice Upon A Time History Our store was founded in 1987 by our mother Randi Crouse and we grew up in this store. We have given back to our community over the years by donating to local charities, including the empty bowls, boys and girls club, Vermont youth theatre, and more. We have participated in the dress for success program in years past helping people get back to work. We have had silent auctions. We have donated clothing and goods from estate sales and expired items to local donation centers. We shop local and hire local and we try to be community minded. We have a cooperative store of about a hundred vendors who rent spaces and thousands of consignment items are brought in from local people each year. We closed our doors for the pandemic and let go of all our employees/family members in March when Gov. Scott ordered us to do so. We have incurred months of back bills and cannot bring back our staff and are struggling to open our doors. Please help us pay off these back bills and be able to return to our “new normal”. Thank you for your support and thank you for shopping local. Owner, Nicole Chase Says: “Brattleboro is my town. Our childhood memories are not hanging out in a big chain stores. They are at small mom and pop shops here in town. We lived on Organ st, we played arcade games at the Elliot St grocery, got grinders at Tony’s, had pizza at Frankies every weekend, watched movies at the Latches and burritos at the Burrito Exchange. Places that have almost all closed. I cannot imagine a Brattleboro without our store in it. I hope others feel the same way. We will scrape through as long as we possibly can and hopefully it will all work out and we can get back to our new normal soon. We thank everyone for their support and we hope everyone stays safe and healthy. We love our community and that is why we have stayed here. We will make it. ” #savourstore #vtstrong #covid19 #pandemicrelief #brattleboro #downtown #ilovebrattleboro #strongertogether #vtsmallbusiness #mircobusiness
