We are Dale and Terri Anderson, the owners of Abodeon. Abodeon is a vintage retail and gift store, and the movie industry is an essential part of our business. With the last two winters drastically reducing our sales, the movie industry was especially helpful, providing us valuable customers. To have the set designers come into our store and purchase thousands of dollars of vintage items has been a real godsend, not only because they buy our products, but because we are able to tell our customers to watch for our products in the movies. It’s very good PR for Abodeon.
Removing the film industry tax incentives will severely damage our business. If you care about this small business you won’t do it.
