Help me Save my Comic Shop Please
Hi. My name is Mike Cote and I am the Owner of DJ's Comics. I am trying this as a last effort to save my Store. I love what I do and have been doing it for over 20 years. That said 10 years ago our economy took a big hit and so did my base. I had to Close old larger location and move to a smaller location to survive. I was fortunate to do so as I know many did not survive. So I count myself lucky there. But it has not been easy. All the debt and the slow rebuilding of customer base (Many lost their jobs and so I lost them as well), has caused a slow draining of my funds. I have done all I could to patch up the holes and try to move forward but the cost has been a burden that has left me on the edge. (The loss of Jobs left me with 1000's of $$$ of Product that if you know how Comic Shops work we order in advance per Customer request with a Store file to save said Product for them when it arrives.) So I am putting out my hands and asking for help to save my Store. If I could achieve my Goal or exceed my Goal I could once and for all rid the Debt I incurred and have carried these last 10 Years. If that happened I would be safe and able to breath again. I know we are all feeling it out there but I cannot express how much it would mean to me as a small business owner doing what I love to be able to continue doing it.+ Read More
After a fast start clearing my first hurdle, things have slowed greatly. Really can use all the help I can get to reach or exceed goal. The next month will be a challenge, but this campaign can get me above water again and then all else I have done or am working on will make the Future much more possible. Thanks to all who got me this far and Thanks in advance to any who can help in the Future. Please Share and Spread message, never know where the help will come from.
It has been a few days and things are slowing down. I really hope that I can regain some momentum. The need is real. I am doing what I can to dig out but any help I can get from this Campaign is much needed and very appreciated. The first hurdle was cleared and for that, very grateful. So Thank You to all who have helped so far.
Thanks so much again. We are close to the half way point and I am so hopeful for continued success. Every little bit helps. Thank you.
Thank you everyone so much for the continued support and help in my goal to keep my store. Every bit helps big and small. I love what I do and really look forward to running my small business for years to come and I am humbled by your support. Thank you so much.
