Hardship Strikes Alcove Coffee

Like many businesses in the community, Alcove Coffee has been facing many challenges this year.  The pandemic has brought many obstacles with new sanitation and social distancing requirements, quarantine periods for anyone exposed to COVID-19, increased numbers of people staying home, and so on. On top of this, Alcove Coffee reported on their Facebook account in November that the owner’s mother had passed away.

It seems these circumstances have almost taken the local coffee house under.
