According to owner Andrew Carter, the “full shop remodel” includes things like new tables, a new countertop and bar, updated bathrooms, and a merchandise corner where the shop’s loyal customers can buy T-shirts and mugs.
“We’re going for not sterile-modern, but more cozy modern,” Carter said. “We want to light the place up a little bit.”
Located at 125 E. Poinsett St. in Greer, the shop has been open since 2017. Carter noted that he has plans to grow the store, and has purchased a San Franciscan coffee roaster so Barista Alley can roast its own beans. Carter said he plans to begin roasting in the spring of 2020.
