S.O.S = Save Our Store!
Have you read your latest newsletter that we sent out on Tuesday?
The Shoppe is up for sale.
We had put it out last summer when we completed our business plan of 5 years and our lease was coming to an end. We had a few inquiries and a very interested party then. But our landlord needed a definite answer sooner than the sale could take place.
He offered us a super-fantastic lease in the suite next door and we decided to sign for another year.
Well, that year is coming to an end soon. We are not going to re-sign and keep going. We have other "avenues" that we are persuing, along with my spending more much-needed time at home with my family.
So the store's assets and the inventory is for sale to be snatched up by someone else who would like to keep it going here in Columbus. Or you may want to move somewhere else.
It would be a WONDERFUL opportunity for a retiree or a group of friends who could share the purchase & operating hours, thus keeping the costs down tremendously!
If you have dreamed of owning your own business like this, now would be the PERFECT opportunity! We are putting it out at a rediculously low price....starting from the ground up (like we did) would cost you 8 or 9 times what we are selling for!
We hope with all our heart that someone will step up and keep The Shoppe going so that Columbus does not lose this independent store....too many others have closed across the country lately and all the communities are left with are the chain stores. And we all know how helpful they are!
So talk to your husband, your kids, your friends and give us a call if you would be interested in keeping this scrapping store alive!
