Dear friends and customers:
We’d like to share some information with you about the direction that Salt Spring Coffee is taking and a decision we have made.
We are dedicated to being leaders and inspiring change. And we have had to acknowledge that operating a best-in-class coffee house on Main Street would strongly compromise other areas of our business.
As a result, we have decided to close the Main Street Coffee House permanently, effective Monday, November 19, 2012.
This decision was very difficult to make as it affects customers, partners, staff and other stakeholders, but we feel it is the right decision for Salt Spring Coffee.
Closing the Main Street location will allow us to put our efforts on what we do best – roasting high quality coffee, leading in sustainability practices including initiatives at origin, pioneering in the coffee industry, and strengthening our continuing commitment to people and community.
You can continue to find Salt Spring Coffee at more than 300 coffee houses, restaurants, wholesalers, grocery and specialty food stores as it is available widely in Vancouver, and for that matter in Western Canada.
Our Ganges Coffee House and Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal kiosk are ready to serve you, so please visit us at one of those locations. Or, visit our online store for the widest (and freshest) selection of all our coffees and coffee gear.
When we founded Salt Spring Coffee in 1996, we wanted to create a successful business around great coffee that doesn’t compromise the earth. More than 16 years later, we’re proud of our business and social responsibility record.
Thank you for your continued support and partnership.
Mickey McLeod, Co-founder and President, Salt Spring Coffee
