Armed and Dangerous

Stabilization Grant, Fall 2008

Armed and Dangerous has been around for almost twenty years.  They sell romantic Goth jewelry, clothing, and gifts.  They are located on 4th Street between South and Bainbridge Streets.  The area is the center of the Goth scene and this business is well positioned. There is a loyal customer base which could be grown with the addition of an e-commerce presence.

South Street was torn up with streetscape improvements rendering it difficult to navigate.  A much needed repair to the roof and the addition of a web site, and a computer will stabilize this business.  Armed and Dangerous will be able to broaden their presence to other parts of Philadelphia and the east coast Goth scene.
