A COFFEE shop closed without warning its customers.
The Starbucks rival used handwritten notes on the store’s front doors to announce the closure, alongside social media posts.
The Revelator Coffee Company also had a location in downtown Birmingham, Alabama, among other Southern locations.
According to AL.com, the downtown location was the company’s first.
The signs on the door were written by the staff themselves.
“Closed forever,” one of the signs began.
“The employees were given neither a warning nor a severance payment.”
“We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your support and service,” read the poster, signed by the Revelator team.
Another closing sign showed gratitude to the cafe’s regular customers.
“To our devoted and amazing regular: Thank you for your incredible love and support,” it began.
“We cherish you infinitely.”
The third sign posted the former employees’ Venmo usernames in hopes of earning something in lieu of severance pay.
Some people have taken to social media to show their support for the Revelator baristas.
People responded to the tweet and agreed with the original tweet.
“I was actually going to pick up some bags of Revelator on my trip south this week because I loved their coffee, but fuck it. Instead, I’m sending these people some cash,” read one response.
The US broadcaster The Sun contacted the Revelator Coffee Company Tuesday for comment, but did not immediately receive a response.
