EUGENE, Ore. — A local coffee shop was in a giving mood Saturday to celebrate five years of business.
The Eugene Coffee Company on Chambers Street opened in 2008. To show their appreciation, they spent the day giving out chocolate to customers.
The coffee shop’s known for serving locally grown, organic fair-trade products. The owner of the coffee shop says she feels lucky to still be in business after the rough economic times.
“I think it’s nothing less than a miracle for any of us who are in small business to make it for five years. Starting a business in 2008, it was really a challenge,” said owner Sue Harnly.
Employees of the coffee shop say their atmosphere sets them apart from national chains.
