Today the new Coffee Corner opened at Robinson Funeral Home in Easley, SC. This is the first and only coffee shop in Easley that serves the Starbucks brand. The place is absolutely gorgeous and obviously the coffee is fantastic! While there has been no “Grand Opening” yet, the shop is open and serving. This is awesome for me because my studio is located just down the road, so I can now grab a Starbucks whenever the mood hits without having to drive out of the city. After all of the world-wide media attention this received, I have been anxiously waiting for Coffee Corner to open. This morning, I met my father at the shop and bought him a cup of coffee while we both checked the place out. It really is quite amazing. If you grew up in Easley, you will notice that the entrance faces Main Street and the parking lot was once used by the “historic” Colony Theater… Which brings back some great memories from my youth.
Along with coffee, they are serving other goodies such as cookies and muffins. The Robinson’s are good friends of mine and I think they have a huge hit on their hands. (Way to go Chris and Rebecca!!) I wish them continued success and am really going to enjoy having easy access to Starbucks in my home town.Continue Reading→
