Tea, Coffee Shop Cleared for Cole Avenue in Williamstown
iBerkshires.com reports that the zoning Board of Appeals on Thursday cleared the way for a specialty tea and coffee shop on Cole Avenue.
Rebecca Guanzon and Justin Adkins were before the board seeking permission to operate a retail shop at 248 Cole Ave., the current home of LaPlante Appliance Service Center.
Approval was needed for a change in use to the previously nonconforming property, which sits just outside the Limited Business district.
Primary hours for the shop will be 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Adkins said. But the proprietors also sought and received permission to host small meditation and yoga groups outside regular business hours.
