Help a Small Business Affected by Coronavirus
Entrepreneur and small business owner Maddie Boening opened Sunstone Candles' first brick and mortar location in November of 2019, which had one of the best locations imaginable. The shop was located on the Mezzanine level of Union Station in Washington, DC.
During the same time in November 2019, there were beginning to be reports of a new mysterious illness emerging from Wuhan, China.
There was a 1-year lease agreement.
In late March 2020, the store was forced to close to due to the government-mandated shutdown of nonessential retail businesses. When the year lease was over, it turned out that the store was forced to be closed for longer than it was able to be open.
Without being able to utilize the space 3/4 of the time, but still expected to pay all expenses incurred, Sunstone Candles needs your help to keep the dream alive! It has been an unimaginable year for small businesses, especially those who relied on foot traffic to survive. We can't lose sight of the fact that small and local businesses are the heart and soul of our communities.
