After some false starts, Leader Block Wine & Coffee Company will be open for business in early June according to the owner.
The Leader Block Building on 2nd Avenue and Main Street has seen significant exterior and interior renovations over the past year.
It was originally hoped the wine and coffee business would open back in December. But, according to building and business owner, Robert Pinkley, just days before he was going to host a private gathering in the building he was informed by City of Ferndale officials additional fire detection and suppression equipment were needed.
Pinkley said there will be an open house and ribbon cutting with the Ferndale Chamber of Commerce Friday, June 2nd between 3pm and 5pm but he did not expect the business to be open regular hours until the following Monday, June 5th.
Pinkley said Leader Block Wine & Coffee Company will serve coffee and espresso drinks during the day and wines and cheeses in the evening hours.
The Leader Block Wine & Coffee Company will be located next door to Ye Old Barber, also located in the Leader Block Building.
