Serendipity Sisters & Bean Me Up Latte announced Tuesday morning at about 9:45 via Facebook that the home decor, coffee shop and concert venue will temporarily close due to “unexpected financial difficulties.”
“It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Bean Me Up Latte will be temporarily closing due to unexpected financial difficulties,” the post reads. “We will keep you updated with any news on the re-opening. Thank you all for being so great to us and accepting us into the community of Conway.”
Jim Hensley of Hensley Law Firm, PA, co-owns Serendipity Sisters & Bean Me Up Latte with wife Lisa Hensley.
George Covington, Sr., president of Covington Companies, owns and leases the space at 923 Front St., Suite 2, where the coffee shop and boutique currently operates.
Covington said Serendipity Sisters & Bean Me Up Latte is moving out of the Covington Companies owned property by next week.
“I don’t know if they’ll be open this week or not,” he said.
Another company is assuming the Hensley’s lease in a week, Covington said, but he did not disclose the identity or nature of the new tenant.
Serendipity Sisters & Bean Me Up Latte announced its temporary closing four months after opening to the public Dec. 7.
Calls to the store were unanswered, and the Hensleys could not be reached for comment.
