But now Cindy needs the community’s help.
A water leak has been discovered under the building. Water service had to be turned off to prevent additional damage. Currently, the building has NO water.
Initial repair estimates are $14,000 but may run higher depending on what’s found when contractors dig down to the broken pipe. All funds raised will be used to fix the waterline and return the bookstore to a safe, serviceable condition.
The mandatory COVID shutdown already challenged Cindy, forcing her to close for 10 weeks. The store reopened but with only limited hours and days. Still, she’s managed to hang on and survive. But this water leak could force her to close permanently.
When supporters reached out to Cindy to offer help, she was deeply moved, saying, “My heart feels like it’s being hugged.”
We need our bookstore and our bookstore needs us.
