ST. LOUIS – A local restaurant is in desperate need of financial help.
Local Harvest operates a grocery store and two cafes in Tower Grove and downtown.
The struggling company says it needs $120,000 by next Friday to stay open. On Monday, Local Harvest posted a plea online, asking customers for help. Anyone who buys a gift certificate will get 10 percent added to the amount.
Here's the catch: the gift certificates can't be redeemed until 2015.
If the goal isn't reached by Friday, Feb. 7, Local Harvest will refund everyone's money.
