Customers rally to save Croton coffee shopPosted: Updated:
Loyal customers are doing their part to help prevent a Croton-on-Hudson coffee shop from closing.
Nance's Coffee Shop is tucked away on the second floor of the Croton-Harmon station, with its antique sign-adorned walls and counter that's decorated with fresh-baked muffins and crullers.
Kristine Cohen is Nance's sister-in-law and has been running the 51-year-old shop for a decade. That could change, though, as Cohen says the Metropolitan Transportation Authority is making the space currently occupied by the shop available to a new tenant.
The owners have sent countless letters and emails to the MTA, asking it to stop the bidding process and negotiate with them, but they say they have not received a response. News 12 also reached out to the MTA, but similarly received no response.
Faithful patrons are showing their support for the shop by filling up two poster boards with signatures, making it clear that they want Nance's to stay.
Even if the MTA finds a new tenant for the space, Cohen says she'll fight for her customers and family.
