Cary, NC – Over a year ago, I wrote a story about the closing of It’s a Grind coffeehouse in Stonecreek Village. It opened back up quickly under new ownership and has been open ever since.
It’s a Grind – Open in Cary
Such is the power of the internet that my old story has been a plague to the new owner. Okay, maybe not a plague, but an annoyance.
Here in the 27519, CaryCitizen has search cred. That means Google ranks us more highly than other local websites, so our stories come up first on a wide variety of searches.
The “It’s Closed” story continued to come up in search for It’s a Grind in Cary, which is in fact open. Seven days a week.
I went in to It’s a Grind yesterday afternoon for a coffee and fell into discussion with the new owner, Mike. Not knowing about the search thing, I gave him my card.
It took a moment, but then the lightbulb went off in his head. He looked up from the card and asked me (politely) to correct the old story.
I did you one better Mike – I unpublished the old story. It will disappear from search in a few weeks. And I’ve replaced it with a new story, which will hopefully rise to the top of the rankings and send coffee lovers to It’s a Grind in Cary. Now open.
About It’s a Grind in Stonecreek
It’s a Grind in Stonecreek (corner of Davis & High House) is a nice, clean, comfortable place with good service and excellent coffee.
The beans are microroasted, giving It’s a Grind coffees a unique character. In general, their coffees are not as heavy as Starbucks.
The location in Stonecreek has the usual coffee house tables, chairs and upholstered furniture. But two unique features are noteworthy – a big conference table inside and really good outdoor seating, with tables and chairs in the sun and in the shade. Good people watching, too (a rarity in Cary).
Mike also carries breakfast and lunch items, serves hot and cold tea, hot chocolate, blended smoothies and other handmade delicious drinks.
I’ve been going for three years and keep going back. Stop in and say hi to Mike. Tell him CaryCitizen sent you.
