Growing up my Baba bribed my siblings & I with McDonalds in exchange of volunteering in the community. This has sparked community care in me because of the connections I’ve made, the laughter & labor of compassion. Now at 25 years old, I want to further my community care into a community store due to the lack of Muslim retail representation in the metroplitan area. Blooming Candles LLC is the beginning of our community store. We'll have aromatherapy, stationeries, clothing, a tea house & a monthly event all in one place. Imagine not driving store to store for a few errands? The community store is for Muslim, by Muslims .
