The owners of The Blue Berry Café announced their long-term lease ended on Dec. 31 and they’ve “made the difficult decision to vacate” the location they’ve had for almost 20 years.

Their last day at their current location on Bellbrook Plaza will be Friday, Jan. 19 because they need to vacate their space by Jan. 31. As previously reported, they will be moving to 129 W. Franklin Street.

The café will be open seven days a week up to Jan. 19.

“Just to clarify – we will never leave Bellbrook…this is not the end – this is see you soon! Bellbrook has always been there for us, and we will never (like ever) leave this special city,” the owners wrote on social media.

The owners said they’ll continue to provide updates on their new location on this Facebook page.

People in the community said they plan to support them through this transition.

“The food is spectacular, it’s good. People come from all over even out of state to eat at Blue Berry. It’s very well known and they’re wonderful people,” Gail Longo said.

“So please stay with us – we will need your support now more than ever,” they wrote.
