NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — One local business is working to help others re-open their doors following the Christmas day bombing.

Sunday marked the end of a two-week fundraiser held by the "I Believe In Nashville" store. All of the store's profits from sales online and at both retail locations will be donated to small businesses and people who lived on 2nd Avenue.

The fundraiser was originally meant to last one week, but the store extended it because of the overwhelming support.

The store will also be teaming up with CNBC personality Marcus Lemonis for another fundraising venture.

"We're hoping this year to launch the 'I Believe In Nashville Fund' which will actually be a fund that we start that gives grants to small businesses in Nashville throughout the year. So we're in the process of starting that right now and a portion of every proceed from every sale will go towards that," said the store's Chief Marketing Officer, Tim Gerst.

Proceeds from the last two weeks of fundraising will be given to the Music City Inc. fund and Lemonis' 30 Day Nashville fund.
