outside store

We Need Your HELP: GoFundMe

Zambo Aroma opened our storefront in summer 2018 and right away became a unique place. Since then we have grown from a simple soap shop to a cultural community center with classes, events, and workshops focused on self-care and holistic wellness. We also have focused on building our network of black business owners and entrepreneurs through networking, mentoring, and sponsorships.

Recently the store had an electrical fire. The external damage to the store was minimal, but the internal re-wiring is costly. Since the event, the physical store hasn’t had electric power. It won’t be restored until the situation is fixed and deemed safe.

While this situation is common for older buildings, it was unexpected for us. We’ve tried our best to manage to move to a remote location to continue production and promote online sales. But unfortunately, before we could catch a moment to announce what happened the store was burglarized. The thief slid underneath the locked outside gate and shattered the front door of the store. Using brute force to break the glass, the entire front door was broken. The vandal(s) took store cash, electronics, and products.

One event like this could cripple any small business like us. As a small family-owned business that was started without a loan or investor we have been devastated by this unfortunate string of events and we fear our survival. Our small family has given our entire savings to start and maintain such a unique business welcoming to all communities and focused on promoting self-care.

While we fight the depression of caring such a heavy load We’re asking individuals and organizations to help us stay open to continue being a beacon of light and love for our Bronx community and those who need it the most. 

Become Apart Of Our Story

We’re community-driven and want to honor everyone that has supported us. Anyone that donates over $50 to our company will receive a special thank you and have their name engraved on our outside wall in a new art installation.
