Madcap Coffee Closes Downtown Market Location
After three years, Madcap Coffee is permanently closing its location at the Grand Rapids Downtown Market on Ionia Ave., Fox 17 reports.
Trevor Corlett, Madcap's founder and CEO made the announcement Monday on Facebook saying the closure is a "result of the pandemic and many other external factors."
Corlett thanks customers, staff, and fellow tenants at the market and goes on to say,
We’ve learned a lot about service and experience in our time there, and have worked hard to apply these lessons to other parts of our business. We are sad to say goodbye to a space we cared so deeply for, but are excited for what future may hold."
Founded in 2008, Madcap has two other locations in Grand Rapids: on Fulton St. and on Monroe Center. Madcap also has a coffee shop in Detroit.
Their Monroe Center location was damaged during a riot downtown Grand Rapids May 30th. The next day Madcap shared their gratitude on Facebook to those who had come to help repair the damage; they remained open that day and serving the public. Following a brief closure, the coffee shop reopened June 8. As with many of the downtown businesses that were damaged, an artist has painted a mural on the plywood covering Madcap's broken windows.
