‘Beer Fridge’ on Essex Street is Teetering on the Brink of Closure
Beer Fridge lost its own and is making an urgent appeal to the community.
The Essex Street beer shop “endured a heavy hit” earlier this month when its large refrigerator broke down. This seemingly simple loss caused “ungodly repair costs, days of closure and an unfortunate amount of inventory made unsellable.”
To that end, ownership started a GoFundMe campaign to help pay for the expenses and stave off “possible imminent closure.” (The company previously posted a listing to share half its footprint at 41 Essex Street.)
Beer Fridge attained their $1,700 goal within a couple days of posting, and surpassed its modest $1,600 target.
Unfortunately at the beginning of this month, our largest fridge gave out. And I mean gave out. Fixing our fridge was a top priority and as a result, we’ve faced the truest of troubles of a small business. To get our main fridge back up and running we faced ungodly repair costs, days of closure and an unfortunate amount of inventory made unsellable from this fridge issue. We are in a position of possible closure due to the lost revenue over the weeks and repair costs. We need your help to raise funds to set us back on track, and make us stronger than ever in the community!
