🔵🏡🔴 #rp @sodonetwork Little Haiti, FL (December 27, 2017) – Just one year after being awarded “The Best Thrift Store in Miami” by the Miami News Time, the Little Haiti’s Thrift Store will be closing down - on December 28, 2017.
Climate Gentrification is escalating the property value in Little Haiti. Provoking a constant drain of Haitian operating businesses. Before they close shop, the Haitian-American entrepreneurs want to bring awareness to the needed Economical renaissance of Little Haiti’s Marketplace & the Northeast 2nd AVENUE corridor.
We hereby invite representatives of the media to cover the press conference, which will be held on Dec. 28th, from 10:00AM to 11:00AM, at the store, 5863 NE 2nd Ave, Miami, FL, 33137.
Local vendors, businesses, community organizers & residents are joining them to present their plans of action under the banner of, " 2018 Economic Revolution for Little Haiti.” The co-owner Myrlande Sanon-Jules knows that the closing will impact the people they will miss the most: artists, tourists, residents. “I would like to celebrate Little Haiti with them and let them know that I am not giving up on this community,” she said. “It is very important to us to take the time to also remember the late Wilfrid Daleus, who despite being an Internationally renowned artist had to also close his art gallery a few months before his death,” commented Shiller Sanon-Jules.
The following collective will address the direct cause of the massive plight of Little Haiti’s economy; Little Haiti Thrift Store, Wilfrid Daleus’ Estate, Captain Haiti, Konscious Kontractors, Keeping It Haitian, Boukman Mangones, Mecca Grimo, Hoppy the Realtor, Jennifer Lovelace, Eclypse Oil, Where?, Lisa Metellus-Hood, Monitora Rebelde, Business Valuation By Rene Charles, Eddie Arroyo, and many more.
