We Still Need Your Help

Turn of the Corkscrew, Books & Wine has been opened for over a year now. For several months, we were going in the right direction. It was gratifying to see our hard work, commitment and long hours adding to our success. But then in May 2016 street closures due to major construction turned the tide for us in a negative way. Here it is December and finally it seems that the construction is over, after our street had been closed every day for months. What followed was our bills piling up while our sales went down. Customers told us they couldn’t get to us due to the mess our street was in. Our business plan didn’t account for this major interruption in business, which is why we are asking for help…because we need your help! We, Peggy and Carol, are co-owners who put our homes on the line and invested over $100,000 of our own money because we believed in this venture, (and still do) not because we expected to get rich. However, we never expected something as unexpected as street construction to hinder our accomplishment. We have many events scheduled in the coming months and need to order books for them, as well as more books and products for the holiday season while a sizeable loan payment lingers over us.

Therefore, if you liked what we bring to the community, as well as the South Shore of Long Island, won’t you please help keep us in business? In order to do this, we are trying to raise $75,000 to get us back on our feet. We have reached over $10,000 thus far and are so appreciative. Thank you, but we could continue using your help. Very much appreciated….https://www.gofundme.com/2tph29zy
