Tell The Proprietors of Camryn Station That The Community Cares About Frida's
This petition made change with 242 supporters!
After 4 years as establishing themselves as one of the best values for quality food, drink, and as hosts of a fantastic gathering place in our community, it was announced on February 1, that Frida's will be closing effective March 1. This isn't the first time this has happened. Support from the community and a renegotiated lease kept their doors open for another 2 years, yet here we are again. Rising rent at the cost of benefiting private profit margins versus keeping a quality thriving business installed is the heart of the problem.
The outpouring in the last 18 hours since the announcement was made has been strong and firm in the beliefs of loyal patrons who have supported this family owned and operated business within our community; and while we can't promise that your continued support will keep their doors open, we as community members are obligated to have our voices heard in a show of support for not only Frida's, but for our local small business community as a whole. Join us as we gather this Saturday at Frida's to demonstrate to the proprietors that we care more than they do about the price per square foot. We care for the value of humanity that exists within that space that no dollar can equate to.
Join us and #MarchforMargaritas as #CitizensforChurros and support #FridasDillwyn and the #LocalBusinessCommunity
We will gather at Frida's on Saturday, February 4, from 4:30-7:30 to show our support, gather signatures from those in favor of keeping them here, and promote positive dialogue about the issues that all of our local businesses in the community face, and offer ways in which the community members can support them- oh, and also, EAT GREAT FOOD!
Those wishing to demonstrate outside may bring signs -but no negativity allowed, please! This is a show of solidarity, appreciation, and support for a professional establishment and our actions will reflect just that.
Can't join us on Saturday, but want to show your support? Sign this petition that will be shared with the owner of Camryn Station.
