Small Businesses Unite to Overcome Challenges: The Popcorn Shoppe’s Story

The winter season has been particularly challenging for small businesses, and The Popcorn Shoppe at the Metro Centre is no exception. Matt George and Niki Duckworth, the owners of the business, have been struggling to keep their doors open due to a significant decrease in sales. In a recent social media post, they shared their struggles and urged the community to lend their support.

The response was overwhelming, with over 500 reactions and 2,000 shares. Other local businesses like Big Mike’s Donuts & Coffee offered their support by collaborating 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. The business’ call for help has not gone unheard, and their story has resonated with the local community. It demonstrates how small businesses can band together to overcome challenges and succeed in difficult times.
