Small Business Struggles: The Popcorn Shoppe’s Appeal for Support
The Popcorn Shoppe, located at the Metro Centre, has recently shared a heartfelt post on social media about the challenges they have been facing as a small business. Owners Matt George and Niki Duckworth expressed that the winter season has been particularly slow, resulting in a significant decrease in sales.
The business has been unable to pay their employees, afford rent, or buy inventory, leaving them struggling to keep their doors open. However, The Popcorn Shoppe’s message of desperation was met with an overwhelming amount of support from the community.
Local businesses such as Big Mike’s Donuts & Coffee offered their assistance and customers were encouraged to take advantage of their special offers and collaborate on fundraising events. Despite the challenges, The Popcorn Shoppe continues to offer a variety of gourmet popcorn flavors, lemon shake-ups, freeze-dried candy and other treats.
After receiving an overwhelming amount of support from the community, The Popcorn Shoppe provided an update expressing their gratitude for the outpouring of support while also emphasizing the ongoing need for continued assistance to stabilize their business. Their call for help has not gone unheard and their story has resonated with the local community, demonstrating the power of small businesses banding together to overcome challenges and succeed.
