Jo’s Coffee House will include a small stage to be used for acoustic bands and singer-songwriter shows. “Red’s is a cornerstone of the Spring Grove community and we understand how important it is to keep a thriving local grocery store. We were excited to help with this project and hope it remains strong for many years to come”, says Spring Grove EDA Director, Courtney Bergey Swanson. The entire project includes 2,500 sq. ft. and will be completed before the end of the summer.
