Free Biggby brew all next week downtown


From the Grand Rapids Press

You may remember Biggby (Beaners) Coffee’s big drink giveaway in February that coincided with the temporary closure of Starbucks.
I blogged here about how the downtown Biggby closed during the giveaway rather than join with all the other Biggby stores in the area in participating in the free drink promotion.

 

Well, the downtown Biggby has a new owner, Steve Antaya, who already owns three other Biggby shops.

 

Antaya is celebrating the change in ownership (and perhaps atoning for the previous owner’s decision to be a Grinch) by holding a week-long grand reopening of the downtown Biggby beginning Monday.

 

All week that store (and that store only) will be giving away brewed coffee (any size!). That’s a whole week of free coffee. (This does not include your lattes, macchiatos and stuff like the Peanut Butter Cup Big Chill.)

 

But wait, there’s more. He’s running the same promotion at the new Biggby, 365 Michigan St. NE (in a new building next door to Subway) when that store opens its doors on May 20.

 

The Monroe Center location is open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturdays, and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays.
The new store on the corner of Fuller and Michigan streets will be open 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Sunday after May 20.
