After 17 years Gin Spears has decided to change things up in her life. She is leasing her business to Stephanie Knerr. Gin’s final day will be August 7.

Gin says she has no immediate plans as to what she is going to take on next in life. She plans to take a bit of time, see what all is out there, and then decide what direction to go. Time will tell.

Gin said she is grateful for all the loyal customers over the years and that their support and patronage were greatly appreciated. She added she could not have done this for 17 years without them – nor would she have wanted to.

As with most things in a small town there have not been a lot of changes over the years. Mostly just upgrading equipment and in the computerization of all the ins and outs of doing business in the 21st century.

Gin stated she has many fond memories from over the years. A lot of people come and go and you lose so many good friends.

One of the most lingering memories is her “coffee guys”. In the past, a group of local gentlemen would gather each morning at Gin’s and talk over coffee. Most of them are gone now but the memories are still there.
