Thank You Very Much!

It's tough making a brick-and-mortar business succeed, regardless of whether you're new or been around for a long while, or whether the economic times are poor or good. Making the decision to say "That's it! We need to close our doors." is a hard thing to do as well. 

These are a few of the shops and restaurants that said Good-bye to us in Hollister in 2015. Thank you very much for your good cheer and service!

She's closed in June after 23 years of being in business. It was one of the few independent clothing shops specializing in women's apparel in town. Although her clothing shop is no more, its owner Sheila Stevens can be found at her other two businesses in Hollister, The Heavenly Bakery  on San Benito Street and She's Consignment Store, at the corner of Fifth and East Streets. 

Swanky Finds, a thrift and consignment shop, closed earlier this year. The fun shop was next to the Country Rose Cafe on San Benito Street.

Closing the doors of Muenzer's Keys & Teez in October marked the end of 105 years of Muenzer's presence in Hollister. In 2012, Muenzer's downsized and moved next door to its original storefront on Fifth Street. 

3rd Base Burger Bar, formerly Grillin & Chillin Downtown, on the main drag closed several weeks ago. However, we can still enjoy the hospitality of the owners, Chuck and Joann Frowein, at their two other establishments—Roadhouse Grillin & Chillin, corner of Highway 156 and Mitchell Road, and Grillin & Chillin Alehouse on McCray Street. 

The Best of Times Cafe  served its last meals to customers earlier this month. Paul and his colleagues purchased the cafe in July, 2014.  The cafe opened in 1996 as the Hard Times Cafe. Somewhere in time the first owner was forced to change its name because a franchise chain on the East coast owned the name.
