Buy Black Purchase 110317

I got the above-pictured castile soap, hair pomade, and castor oil with aloe from a Black-owned business in Brooklyn. There are so few Black businesses in New York City right now. It is important that we support them, and protect them.

Here’s the location of the store I got the products from:
Anwaar Co.
354 Atlantic Avenue (Between Bond & Hoyt Street)

This store has a slew of great products for grooming and personal care! Check it out. It is open 7 days a week.

The Fly Or Die Commerce Report: Starbucks Closes Its Online Store

Written By: Elsie Law - Oct• 10•17

In a shocking move in this digital age, Starbucks has decided to shut down its online store. This online shut down has also come at a time, when, according to Forbes, Starbucks has also announced that it will be closing “all 379 of its stand-alone Teavana stores.”

According to the New York Times, Starbucks’ decision to nix its online store was made in order to allow the company to “focus on [the] in-person experience.”

According to Business Insider, the coffee behemoth’s representatives have described the closure as an opportunity to build “commercial partnerships with digital companies,” that will enable them to create a “global retail footprint.”

Starbucks seems to be playing coy with their motives. Being that this company is such a trendsetter in retail, it will be interesting to see how this development evolves.

Benjamin Banneker“At age twenty-eight, [Benjamin Banneker] the young clockmaker fell in love with Anola, a beautiful slave on a nearby plantation. He could marry her legally only if she were free, but her master refused to sell her to Banneker, saying, ‘I will never sell her to a Negro!’ Banneker devised an elaborate plan to steal her. He booked passage for them both on a ship to England, but his plan failed and almost cost him his life. A short time later, Anola, brokenhearted, drowned herself. Banneker vowed to keep her memory alive, and he never married.” -From, “African American Inventors” By: Otha Richard Sullivan
