Borderlands Buys Store

Borderlands Books has raised $1.9 million in loans from supporters which will allow them to purchase a building on Haight Street in San Francisco to serve as its permanent home. Alan Beatts nearly had to close the store in 2015, but was rescued when he began selling store sponsorships, raising enough that he had a surplus. He decided to use the surplus to make a downpayment on a building and crowdsourced a fundraiser to raise the rest of the money needed. It took 18 days.
