Bits & Bites

Copper Coin in Woodstock is closing.  The locally owned coffee shop announced its planned closure Tuesday in message posted to its Facebook page.  "It’s with a heavy heart that Copper Coin announces it will be permanently closing on Saturday, September 3, 2022.  Rising food costs combined with new discretionary spending trends prohibit us from renewing our upcoming five-year lease.  To our many customers, fans, remote-work guests, and fellow coffee addicts—THANK YOU."  Copper Coin started as Old Woodstock Coffee House in 2010 before moving from Uptown to Downtown Woodstock in 2011.  Copper Coin founder Mike Gullicksen went through ill-advised expansions to Brookhaven and Cumming, both of which subsequently closed.  Gullicksen sold the Woodstock business in 2017 to Randy Altmann, who in turn sold the business to Chantel Adams and her husband this past October.
