Coffee shop still closed after flooding

Coffee shop shut due to flooding

A COFFEE shop in Henley will be closed for the “foreseeable future”.

Starbucks, in Market Place, was shut yesterday (Wednesday) due to flooding and remains closed today.

Damp carpet flooring panels had been left in street and the windows of the coffee shop are covered with condensation.

Inside the building, bins have been used to catch water seeming to have come from above and the furniture has been stacked to one side. 

A notice in the window said: “Dear customer, due to major flooding we are unable to open the store for the foreseeable future.

“Our closest Starbucks is located in High Street, Marlow. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.”

Paul-James Brown, district manager for the Soul Coffee Company, which runs the store, said: “Our store on Bell Street has unfortunately had to close while we work alongside our neighbours to repair water damage that happened overnight.

"We would like to apologise to our customers for any inconvenience caused and look forward to welcoming our customers back as soon as we can.”
