Pandemonium Update:

Tyler (the owner) got to announce on Sat. that he had managed to get a Consolidation loan (after a year of trying), which includes the tax debt, and that they’ll be removing the Lien on the Store in the next 2 weeks as the paperwork clears. The money from the fundraiser donations and the folks who helped out by shopping etc will be put towards getting the loan payments dealt with and getting the store in a better way with stocking what people want and providing the services/activity space that they want.


Pandemonium Books Fundraiser Tomorrow Night

From here:

Pandemonium Books & Games in Central Square Cambridge (4 Pleasant Street, behind the 7-11 on Mass Ave and across the street from the Post Office) is having financial problems, from a combination of Taxes/Fees owed to the State Department of Revenue, outstanding to creditors and the inability to get a cosolidation loan in the current economic downturn from the banking crisis.

In order to start the ball rolling to help, we the local fans and customers of the bookstore are holding a Pot Luck Fund Raiser at the store this Saturday Night, 7-11 pm in the store’s basement activity space.

Folks who want to come and help out this independent bookstore survive should bring a shareable food item and be willing to donate $10 into the Pandemonium Preservation Fund.
