I'd like to see most of the chain stores and restaurants throughout Napa go away.

It would be interesting if Napa Roasting Company would consider expanding into that bigger space. When Copperfields took the leap to Bel Aire they nailed it and I think a bigger local coffee shop with the features of a Starbucks would do well there. But I'm not paying the rent so who knows....

I like that option Beth~if NVRC had the means to move to that location and offer wi-fi and longer hours, that would be tremendous!
