According to a social media post, Stone Creek Coffee will close its 88Nine RadioMilwaukee location, 158 S. Barclay St., at the end of the day on Thursday, Nov. 15. Employees were notified last night and will be offered jobs at other cafes, according to the post.
"The events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic have brought about the necessity to close this cafe," the post reads. "While we will be sad to not see so many friends and guests in this space, we do invite you to come see us at our nearby Bay View cafe, (Downer location), or our downtown Factory cafe and headquarters."
Stone Creek moved into the building in 2013 after it was purchased by 88Nine RadioMilwaukee.
Stone Creek Coffee does not plan to close any other cafes at this time.
RADIO MKE CAFE - Last night we announced to our team that we would be permanently closing the Radio MKE Cafe at the end of the day on Sunday, November 15th. This morning, we are sharing this news with all of you. We are committed to continuing to employ our Radio MKE Cafe team in our other cafes without cutting anyone’s hours. The decision to close this cafe has been difficult. We are proud of our collaborative work and partnership with @RadioMilwaukee over the many years since their earliest days on Vliet Street. However, the events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic have brought about the necessity to close this cafe. While we will be sad to not see so many friends and guests in this space after Sunday, November 15th, we do invite you to come see us at our nearby Bay View cafe, or our downtown Factory cafe and headquarters. We do not currently have any plans to close other cafes at this time. While the impacts of COVID-19 have been difficult, we are optimistic about the future of Stone Creek , and thank the many customers and fans who have supported us through this journey. #neverstoplearning #speaktothefuture #smilingunderourmasks

As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.
She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that.
Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.
Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.
In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!
When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
