Some of you may have received this email, but just wanted to pass the word along in case you haven't. I tried calling this morning and no one answered, so they may have already closed their doors...

"Onwards and Upwards
As many of you know, 3CUPS has had a tumultuous relationship with the landlord who purchased the Courtyard a year or so after we opened our doors. And we've been in the newspaper far too many times in articles which have nothing to do with the wine, coffee and teas we are so enthusiastic about.
With that nebulous introduction, we have good news and sad news this morning.
The Sad News… 3CUPS has closed our downtown Chapel Hill store and we will be taking the summer off. We are sorry and sad to be leaving the West End. We’ve made lots of friends here, and we hate to leave you. But the lack of parking in our current location has become untenable.
The Good News... we will re-open this fall in a new larger location in Chapel Hill on Elliot Road, just down a bit from Whole Foods Market, in the Village Plaza near the ABC store. We're excited about taking all we've learned in the last 4 years and applying it to our new store with an ocean of parking right out the front door! We promise to keep all the coffee, tea, wine and chocolates you’ve grown to depend on, and we look forward to seeing all our friends in the new expanded location.
For those who just can't bear living without your 3CUPS supplies, we are working on potential delivery programs and other alternatives to fill the gap while the shop is closed. We'll let you know you what we’ve come up as well as updates and announcements in upcoming Friday E-Mails."
