Save Stowaway and all Union Market Tenants!
**Please do not donate, this is a petition only** Stowaway and the remaining tenants of Union Market at The District have received notice that we will all be evicted by or master landlord who's attorney has claimed "they are no happier about the way Union Market handled this situation". We have reached out to the master landlord, Vestar / Kimco, and have reached a dead end. We have attempted to lease the entire space and we also have friends in the industry that would like to lease out some of the open spaces, but have been blocked from all potential avenues to save the space.
Dominca (a new empanada concept) was set to open soon along with our remaining tenant friends Leaf N Cream, Braga Bakery, OC Hit Factory, MJ Hair Salon, Berry Brand, and Black Steel Barber have invested our collective blood, sweat, tears, and hard earned capital to open and operate our businesses - some of us putting in entire savings. We managed to survive an international pandemic, just to have our businesses face closure due to Vestar / Kimco's unwillingness to work with us to come to an amicable agreement.
We are reaching out to all of our friends and family out there that want to see the remaining and potentially new tenants continue to thrive. Here is a link to the management at The District if you can spare the time to let management know how you would like us to remain part of this community :

We are asking you to please join us in our fight to save our businesses so we can continue to stuff your faces silly. Please do not donate anything, we are just looking for your support to sign and contact management. Thank you!
Leonard, the team at Stowaway, and the rest of us at Union Market.
