Downtown Tyler Coffee Business Closing

   A lack of downtown business in Tyler is forcing an award winning coffee shop to soon close its doors.  

   Arcadia Coffee Company announced Friday they will close on May 25th for the summer.

   Just recently they were honored by a state downtown association for Best Commercial Interior.

    The owners say the business just hasn't been able to carry itself financially. But the manager says they're hoping this isn't the end for Arcadia, just a bump in the road until downtown revitalization picks up.

    Randy and Shannon Stevenson are also working on revitalizing the theater in back of the coffee shop. Once that is complete, they are hoping to bring in Christian concerts and other events as part of their non-profit and Ministry.

    The Stevensons are very thankful for all of their customers and they are hoping new housing projects underway in downtown will bring more business to the Downtown Tyler area.
