the Plaid Goat has closed it's doors, our farewell letter follows...
October 27th, 2013Dear Friends,
After extensive thought and heartfelt consideration, the Plaid Goat will close its doors effective immediately.
We know this will be surprising news and a bit of a shock. However, there is no easy way to make this announcement. We are grateful for our dedicated staff, our manager Susie Boswell, and the support of our enthusiastic patrons these past two years.
Experience has taught us that success in this business comes from a "hands on " approach in the day to day operations. We simply cannot do it any other way. We committed ourselves to the development and the daily tasks of running "the Goat" but now find that we are exhausted. Running two businesses has placed big challenges and physical demands on us. We needed to change that before fatigue overwhelmed us.
Our goal of creating a warm, tasty, and inviting environment was achieved. We were encouraged by the consistent sales growth and enthusiasm of our customers. Recent accolades in several publications were also very gratifying. But, the fact remained that our hands were too full and we had to make the very difficult decision that we have. Though this decision has not been easy, it is necessary. We look forward to catching our breath, catching up on sleep, and refocusing our energies at High's.
We remain excited about all of the wonderful changes that our little community continues to make. As always, we thank you for the love and support you have shown us through the years. It's all good!
Brent and Denise
