I am writing to inform you that we have made the very difficult decision to close The Shop at Grace Cathedral at the end of this month. In recent years, The Shop has been operating at an unsustainable loss. While we are sad to close The Shop, good stewardship of the cathedral budget makes it clear this is the right decision. The Peet’s Coffee cart is not affected by this change and will continue to operate.
We expect to continue offering engaging mementos and educational items that extend the Grace Cathedral experience to our community and our visitors. For example, we plan to expand the Peet’s Coffee cart to include a limited number of items for sale.
More information about The Shop’s closure will be available in the coming days on the website and in the Sunday wrapper.
