Street Level View

The first thing I am going to talk about is the store where my coffee outlet is located. Its on Pitt St in Cornwall between Second and Third Street, just a few stores north of Riley’s Bakery. If you are from Cornwall then you know Riley’s. It has been an institution for 40 or more years and still is. Riley’s actually has a facebook fan club. Can you believe that, an actual fan club. Anyway, my point is that the location is terrific, to get lunch and to watch people.

I’m fortunate to have been offered space in the Island Ink-Jet And Laser Toner store by Stan and Cliff Stock. If you look in the window of my first picture, the gremlin posing there is actually Cliff Stork. They were setting up an internet cafe and they wanted me to be the cafe part. I have been in the store for about 4 months now and business is growing slowly. The best part of the location is the people, those who come into the store and even those who just walk by. They come in all sizes and shapes. They go by in suits, work cloths and some in thirft store cloths. Being close to the Provincial courts and the Cornwall police station we see a lot of uniforms. Most of the uniforms are going in to Rileys to pick up snacks or lunches.

Next door to us we have Dempster’s Frameworks on the north and Celtic Treasures on the south. Paul Dempster likes my coffee and comes in to buy beans regularly. The Celtic Treasures people don’t seem to like coffee, or should I say my coffee, but then I don’t ever remember them trying it. Stormont Stationers are also between us and Rileys and they like my coffee.

So much for my promise to not shamelessly promote myself. I’ll try harder next time.
