It appears that someone is trying to bring Zandy’s back to life, and they’re looking for support on Facebook to help make it happen.
Someone created a Facebook page with this note: “It is closed right now. This is so a friend of mine can get the loan from the bank. I am trying to get 2500 likes. If this happens, the bank will re-consider.”
Hmmm…never heard of a bank re-considering a loan based on a business garnering a certain number of Facebook “likes,” but I’m willing to suspend my disbelief for a while.
Zandy’s has had quite an interesting few years – closed, then re-opened, then closed again. Would be awesome to see it brought back, and if a show of support on Facebook will help make it happen, I’m in.
UPDATE, Tuesday morning: after more than 10 years of blogging, I’ve finally been Farked! Howdy, Farksters. Welcome to Montana.
Here’s Fark’s take: “Before the collapse, banks based lending decisions on inadequate collateral and income. Now that they’re more responsible, they’re basing lending decisions on the number of Facebook likes potential businesses can get.”
