NEIGHBORS HELPING NEIGHBORS
By Karen Lazarus
Drew Lazarus, who lives in our Mt. Bolus neighborhood, owns a wine store in the Woodcroft shopping center in Durham called Hope Valley Wine & Beverage. When things started crashing some days ago, Drew thought he should close his store to protect his clients and employees. This was before curb pickup for restaurants, etc. Then looking at his four, part-time employees, he changed his mind. They needed that paycheck to pay their rents. So they sent an email out and business has been booming. A small business supporting five people.
