We are so excited to announce that this your chance to get involved in the new independent (aka indie), community bookstore that is coming to Circleville. We know it is very strange for a Circleville, Ohio business to kick off with a “crowdfunder” but who said we had to do it like everyone else? I guess first of all we better give a brief description of what “crowdfunding” is:
“Crowdfunding is a method of raising capital through the collective effort of friends, family, customers, and individual investors. This approach taps into the collective efforts of a large pool of individuals—primarily online via social media and crowdfunding platforms—and leverages their networks for greater reach and exposure.” For more explanation on crowdfunding please click here.
With the help of the community we are working to spread the word of the crowdfunding campaign to not only raise additional start up funds but to allow the community to be involved by purchasing “rewards” to help be a part of something new for the Circleville and Pickaway County area…A BOOKSTORE! We’ve created many different reward levels so there is sure to be something any book lover would like. From t-shirts and book totes to being able to put your name or business name on a plaque that will be located on bookshelves. If you choose to do so you can even help us get 1 of 2 cats from a local shelter and help come up with names for them. If you don’t want a reward you can simply just give a couple of bucks like some already have or you can choose the “You Go Girl” to give me some encouragement in this new endeavor.
Again, we know a crowdfunding thing like this is kind of “weird” for a Circleville business but we hope you will join us as we work together to open a brick and mortar store that is a little different.
