Will Java Attract People To New Place?

Huckleberries asked OTV of Get Out! North Idaho whether customers of Java on Fourth will follow the popular coffee shop to the new Jonesy's location at 8th & Sherman. Here's his reply:

“I think the majority of them will, but will they continue to come back over and over again? I think it's crucial that they recreate the vibe of the 4th & Sherman spot as much as they possibly can, from the laid back atmosphere to the outside seating where customers can people watch. Otherwise, fair weather regulars may decide to stay put and hang out at the (rumored) new coffee shop opening in its place. Rustlers Roost created something special there way back in the day that drove people to it, hopefully Java can do the same.”
