— The new Boston Stoker coffee shop coming to South Main Street (Ohio 48) in Centerville has set an opening date and will give away free coffee that morning along with discounts all day.
The shop at 215 N. Main St. (Ohio 48) will host its grand opening on Friday, Dec. 22. From 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. that day, the shop will offer a free small coffee to customers, and will offer discounts of $5 off all 12-ounce bags of coffee, $1 off all drinks, and a chance to win free coffee for a year with every purchase throughout the day. The new shop also boasts two gaming rooms and custom-made cigar cases, and will offer live music after 5 p.m. during its grand opening.

“Whether you are a regular commuter, live nearby, or just want to come check out the new shop, we’re excited to meet everyone,” Boston Stoker President Henry Dean said in a release.
MORE COFFEE NEWS: This new Starbucks will be the region’s largest yet
Boston Stoker leased the 3,000-square-foot former bank space across from Benham’s Grove in part because it already had a drive-through window in place, Dean told this news outlet last month. Drive-throughs offer convenience to commuters on their way to work and to families with young children in the car, the Boston Stoker president said.
Plans call for closing an existing Boston Stoker coffee shop in the Washington Square Shopping Center on or about Dec. 31, Dean said. That will mark the end of an era: There has been a Boston Stoker coffee shop in the Washington Square shopping center since 1981, even before the Dorothy Lane Market store that anchors the retail center opened, Dean said.

“These moments in one’s life usually will call for an entire litany of thank you’s. I can’t do that because I don’t know all of your names, so I won’t try,” said Freeman. “This is beyond honor. This is a place in history.”
But towards the end of his speech, Freeman commented on the SAG award statue:
