Owners of the local specialty coffee shop Barista Alley announced recently that the shop will close for renovations. The announcement, which came via their social media outlets, said they plan to re-open on Black Friday, Nov. 29.

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.
