Rainy Day Anime wants to Expand

$415 of $1,682 goal

Raised by 8 people in 2 months
Created October 26, 2018
Summary:
Rainy Day Anime is a locally owned small business that's about to get bigger! 

We are located at 2350 S. Academy Blvd. Colorado Springs, CO.  

For 8 years we have created a fun, relaxed and immersive shop that sells goods related to Japanese  Animation, Video Games and Pop Culture. This was always enhanced by our instore events. With a variety of interactive events, from Bento Parties to Gaming Socials, we created comradery and a sense community within our customers. After a few years though, a problem arose, with an expanding inventory and increasing attendance we had outgrown our event space.

But an opportunity came when the business next door recently moved out.  Even though we are still reeling from having our front door run though, we didn’t want to lose this chance, so we quickly came up with a plan: Annex the space to create a large event room independant from the storefront, have extra space for storage, a small office for the owner, and new signs for the storefront and annex. Also, if things go well, expand our current storefront by removing the backroom wall, creating a proper dressing room, and putting in a separate receiving counter for trade-ins and new merchandise.

In order to make this work we need your help!

How can you help:

-Donate to our Go Fund Me Campaign-We will keep you updated on our progress and should we meet our goal hold a special event for donors and friends.

-Sponsor an event or become a VIP member: For more details visit us in store.

-Spread the word about us and our Project: Even if you don’t have the money to help, somebody else does.

-Shop at Rainy Day Anime- Every little bit helps, so the more we sell, the more we can put towards improvements.

We have now raised $1615 meaning we're already halfway there. We also held our Christmas party in the new annex space and it was a huge success. I'm currently working on getting the fridge, and most of the last $1,500 is going to go to the signs once we can raise it up. This will help give the annex some legitimacy and finance the extra rent we're going to have to pay for it.
