This Cafe Is Now Closing All Locations In Unexpected State

This cafe is now closing all locations in one unexpected state leaving the local community and customers devasted, sources report.

Boris & Horton, one of the first dog-friendly cafés in New York City, has announced that it will be closing its doors on Monday, February 26.

A father-daughter duo who founded the café, named after their own pooches, said they originally founded their shop because they wanted a place where they could bring their dogs, enjoy coffee, and relax.

However, their unique business venture has come with its own set of challenges and high costs.

“We need a little bit more space to actually allow the dogs to play safely off leash,” co-owner Logan Holzmon told local CBS affiliate WCBS-TV.

“All of our plates and cups need to be disposable for health department guidelines.

We need some additional staff and additional cleaning supplies.”

In addition to serving coffee and “puppucinos,” the café also hosts a variety of events, such as dog bingo, drag shows, and dog-friendly comedy shows.

After six years in business, the owners announced their decision to close both its East Village and Williamsburg locations on Instagram.

“Instead of dwelling on what didn’t work, let’s celebrate the great times we’ve had as New York’s first dog-friendly café,” read the post.

“From dog adoptions to weddings, gotcha days, birthday parties and everything in between, we have been so lucky to share in your big and little moments.”

Pet owners and dog lovers alike who felt a special connection to the small business were devastated by the news.

“Boris & Horton is part of my life. I’m here five times a day,” customer Josh Beckerman told WCBS.

“This is how I get my dog fix. I don’t have a dog and I love dogs, and I love coffee. You guys cannot close.”

“I can feel my blood pressure lower when I’m in here. I live a few buildings down, so this is like an extension of my living room,” customer Greg Masters told the outlet.

A cosmetics company now makes painful store closures, affecting nearly 50% of all locations, while simultaneously cutting jobs.

The Body Shop’s administrators have announced a restructuring plan for the retailer’s UK business.

Seven of the retailer’s 198 UK stores will close immediately, and future closures will leave “more than half” the current count operating.

Additionally, the Joint Administrators plan to cut headquarters staff by approximately 40%, aiming for a future headcount of more than 400 full-time employees.

According to a press release, “Stabilizing and strengthening the central core will also support The Body Shop’s international strategy, with Global Head Franchise Partners and wholesale partners in Asia, Middle East and Europe a cornerstone of future success.”

The UK arm of the The Body Shop has entered administration, the British version of bankruptcy protection, according to Reuters and other media reports, but it will continue to operate online and via its 199 UK brick-and-mortar stores for the time being.

Private equity firm Aurelius Group purchased the retailer from Natura &Co in November 2023 for nearly $258 million.

Now, FRP Advisory has been brought in to manage the restructuring process, per Retail Touch Points.

Originally founded in 1976 by Dame Anita Roddick, The Body Shop was known for its ethically sourced natural ingredients and refillable packaging.

Founder Roddick also was a vocal activist for environmental causes, beginning in 1986 with her support for Greenpeace’s Save the Whales campaign.

In 2006 Roddick sold the company to cosmetics giant L’Oréal, which sold it again to Natura &Co in 2017.

Worldwide, the company operates approximately 3,000 stores in 70 countries.

“The Body Shop has faced an extended period of financial challenges under past owners, coinciding with a difficult trading environment for the wider retail sector,” according to a quote from FRP in the Reuters article.

FRP also noted that “the Joint Administrators will now consider all options to find a way forward for the business and will update creditors and employees in due course.”
