Local Chapin coffee shop changes hands


A Lexington County coffee shop has changed hands after seven years in business.

The Coffee Shelf, located at 130 Amicks Ferry Rd. in Chapin, has been sold by founder Jerry Caldwell to new owner Anne Shon, according to a press release from Sunbelt Business Brokers, which facilitated the transaction.

The shop sells new and used books and hosts frequent book signings in addition to selling a variety of pastries and coffee drinks, including Literary Character Coffees like the Atticus Finch vanilla and almond latte and the Mother of Dragons white mocha with cinnamon. 

In the release, Shon indicates that she wants to build on the shop’s previous success.

"I am honored to take over such a cherished business and thrilled to continue providing the same level of service and quality that customers have come to expect," she is quoted. "Our goal is to maintain the welcoming atmosphere and charm of The Coffee Shelf while also bringing in some new and exciting offerings."

Located in Amicks Ferry Plaza, a shopping center anchored by a Food Lion, The Coffee Shelf isn’t the only independent coffee shop in the small town of Chapin. Other nearby options include Bart's Crazy Good Coffee and The Daily Grind Cafe.

"I want to thank everyone who has supported us and made this journey so rewarding,” former owner Caldwell is quoted. “It's bittersweet to say goodbye, but I'm thrilled to pass the business on to someone who will continue to serve the community with the same passion and dedication."
