As the famous saying goes, "When one door closes, another one opens". What if you don't want the door to close on your favorite coffee shop? Hudson Valley residents were asking themselves the same question.

We have watched some of our favorite mom-and-pop shops, restaurants, and local businesses close down. Some of them have retired while others are already on a new journey elsewhere.

Everyone has their go-to spot where they can enjoy their warm beverage, a homemade pastry, and enjoy their solitude. Whether this is a chain business or a locally owned one, it can feel as if it's a second home.
