SpeedStick will be permanently closed the day after Thanksgiving (so, closed as of October 10).
It has been fun running the shop next door but for the time being, paring back makes sense.
To make up for more busy-ness in The Main Branch, we are implementing a few new positions. We will be having more people running the main bar and kitchen with the hope that we can be more efficient in one space than we have been in two.
You might already have met some new people (Hi Clay and Abby!) making and delivering your hot food or bussing the front of the shop more vigorously. My belief is that these new positions can allow us to stay on top of line ups and actually allow us to serve you better.
Opening up in SpeedStick’s sweet window will be something new and quite lovely! An asset for the community.
Since you’re here, we have a small favour to ask.
At 1.7 million page views over the past year, more people than ever are reading SPN. We had hoped advertising local services and events would sustain this service, but that has not come to pass. Advertising revenues are falling; status quo is unsustainable. Readers, please consider a small monthly donation. This can help secure the future of SPN. Business owners: Please consider an ad. More than massive local exposure, you will also be affiliated with an independent business that is 100% local, 99% paperless, and highly valued by the 98%. That’s priceless.
Thank you for your continued readership.
