DUE TO EXTENDED FAMILY ILLNESS, JJ’S WILL BE CLOSING EFFECTIVE JULY 28TH, 2004.
JJ’S BUSINESS IS FOR SALE (at a very reasonable price) AND/OR SPACE IS AVAILABLE FOR LEASE.
Thus ends the brief lifespan of Shrewsbury’s one and only real coffeehouse. It was a mixed-bag of a place. The location was great, the top floor of a beautiful renovated factory building in downtown Shrewsbury, a couple minute’s walk from our house. On the other hand, the coffee was lousy, the service slow, and they tended to have crappy CCM playing over the stereo. But for all that, it was the only place to hang out, and occasionally catch live music, at 10PM on a Saturday night.
So, those who know me well have probably already heard the gears turning in my head. One of my dreams has always been to run a coffeehouse. And god knows I’ve fantasized what I’d do with the space they have. On the other hand, I have no business acumen, no capital, and precious little spare time.
Argh. Why couldn’t this opportunity have waited a few years?
