Quoted from wlf_:
A lot of piling on here, I was expecting this "well just sell games!" in "The “temporarily closed or worried about having to close my arcade” thread …", not this one :/
Nobody knows what's going on behind the scenes. Maybe they are selling games, maybe they dont actually own all games, maybe they're leveraged? I genuinely dont know, nor does anyone here.
I, as a Logan regular, appreciated being able to help my pals immediately replace lost tips. Simple as that. Wish people wouldn't jump to conclusions and would focus on kindness with all this going on
The reality is this gofundme sounds solidly like it is to support the staff, not the business.
I am not of gofundme, esp for business. However, this is for the bar backs, tenders, maintainence techs, etc...
All good people! Actually, great people!
This is very different than some of the other Gofundmes popping up for actual business owners of venues looking to ask for donations to keep afloat.
To each their own, but a gofundme for a business to stay afloat seems off. Esp when their are individuals and many of them going to need it more.
Selling off games would be the #1 thing if the actual business.
Hell, I would be surprised not to see many arcades and bararcades selling off some games immediately. Many are very tight on funds, and that shoul dbe the first thing and way to generate some immediate revenue. You can always buy back when things improve.
