Caribou Was More Than Just A Coffee Shop, It Was A Part Of A Life Now Gone

November 20th, 2020

We’re all maps of our experiences, our lives a tapestry of our time spent. Every second, every moment of them. Those reflections of paths taken and choices made, big and small, lead to who we are, in ways big and small. Those decisions can be huge – who we decide to love, to marry, to live with. Or they can be small – the places we frequent, the habits we hold, the culture we imbibe. For more than a decade, Caribou Coffee was a huge part of the mural of my life, and my son’s. And while the closing of a coffee shop may seem small in the larger picture of things, it’s still something. Something... Read More

Is The Quad-Cities Headed For Another Toilet Paper Shortage?

November 2nd, 2020

Is “Tiger King” coming back too? With covid numbers spiking again, general unrest about the election and the political and economic landscape, and more state restrictions looming this week, the familiar spectre of dwindling supplies on shelves — particularly toilet paper — is starting to loom in some area stores. A visit to four area locations — a Target, a Walmart, and two HyVee stores — showed that shelves in some are starting to look a little short, and one store — the Moline Target on John Deere Road — has already put up signs limiting customers... Read More

Moline Caribou Coffee Closing Down Nov. 15

October 22nd, 2020

There’s not going to be any more brew at the ‘bou after this fall. Caribou Coffee, one of my favorite local coffee shops, will be closing their only Quad-Cities location inside the Moline HyVee on John Deere Road next month. The store posted a note this week, stating the following: “Unfortunately, Caribou Coffee will be closing Nov. 15 due to a store remodel.” Patrons of the distinct and delicious coffee and drinks have until Oct. 29 to order any retail items (e.g. bags of coffee, syrups) in order for Caribou to have them before the store closing on Nov. 15. Patrons also... Read More

Especially During Covid, Quad-Cities Small Businesses Need Your Support

August 7th, 2020

Things are not looking good for this fall in regard to covid-19. Numbers are spiking, the government has been pathetically inept in terms of dealing with the crisis, and the economy is once again on the verge of completely tanking. Unemployment is up, some industries are shut down through the end of the year, and others are teetering on the precipice of being shut down, maybe for good. I don’t know about you, but I’m so pessimistic I’m starting to stock up on toilet paper. That’s why it’s more important than ever to shop at your locally-owned small businesses now. Local... Read More
