Big Al's soft opening

Big Al's, the newest coffee shop on the Colville Main Street block, is holding a soft opening March 9 -10 inside of Saundra's Furniture Store. While decorations are still being adjusted, the theme of the coffee shop is sporty and rustic, and pays tribute to Al Wilma. Barista Manager Shalyssa Anderson-Rosario said Genevieve Wilma-Young plans to place a black and white picture of a young Al on the adjacent brick wall. The shop serves sandwiches, candies and other baked goods and ingredients from local vendors like Heather's Bakery and Terry's Dairy. The grand opening will occur along with Saundra's Furniture's Store's grand re-opening on March 24.
