Is there anything we can do to help save the store? It would be a shame if this great FAU institution was lost due to the coronavirus. I purchased some things earlier today and had family members do so as well. Did Mark say how much he might need to realistically keep the store open?

There is no number because money is not the cause of the problem.  The lack of customers is the problem.  What drives traffic to the store: Students, families visiting their students, sports, fans going to sporting events, recruiting weekends, any activity on campus. All of that is on hold.  You can't say that $50K will save the store when you don't have an end point. $100k doesn't save the store when you don't have an end point. $200k can't save the store if you don't have an end point. What if school gets cancelled until the end of the year or beyond? What if football gets impacted or even cancelled? I want to be proactive and put the control in my hands. I cannot make decisions based on guesses or assumptions. I just can't and I just won't.
