Marking their 45th anniversary earlier this month, Dayton’s own Boston Stoker will finish off their 1973 Flashback Celebrations this week with National Coffee Day.
“It’s been great engaging with so many of our customers near and far through the anniversary events,” Henry Dean, President of Boston Stoker said. “With National Coffee Day falling on the end of the month, we thought we’d do a little something extra to cap off our month of Flashback Celebrations.”
September’s 1973 Flashback Sales conclude with these discounts:
☕ Now through Sunday for $2 off all 12oz bags of coffee beans
☕Thursday through Sunday for Buy One Get One Free branded apparel (of equal or lesser value)
☕ Saturday for $1 off all coffee drinks for National Coffee Day
“Come out and see us,” Dean said. “An independent business like our’s doesn’t last as long as it has without great customers and we’re excited to mark the milestone with all of you.”
For those interested in attending, the 1973 Flashback Celebrations take place at all Boston Stoker shops through Sunday, September 30. The full schedule of sales and more info can be found on the Boston Stoker Facebook page.
Dayton-area coffee shop retailer and coffee roaster Boston Stoker will celebrate its 45th anniversary next week with a variety of special offers and discounts.
A three-week-long “Flashback Sale” will start Monday, Sept. 10 and extend through Sept. 30 and will offer $2 off all 12-ounce bags of coffee beans. Also on Monday, Boston Stoker’s coffee shops will offer 25 percent off bakery items.
Thursday, Sept. 13 will mark the Vandalia-based company’s 45th Anniversary One-Day Sale, including all 12-ounce bags of coffee for $4.99, 12-ounce cups of French press coffee for 50 cents, and $2 off all bar beverages.
Boston Stoker was founded in Englewood in 1973 by Don and Sally Dean as a pipe and tobacco shop. As a strategy to build their customer base in a new business, the Deans started offering free, freshly brewed specialty coffee to customers while they shopped, according to the company’s web site. The demand began to grow to buy the coffee to take it home, eventually leading Boston Stoker into the specialty coffee industry.
“When we first started selling whole bean coffee, people literally didn’t know what they were looking at. They thought we had jars of raisins on the wall,” Henry Dean, president of Boston Stoker, said in a release. “The business of coffee has changed a lot in 45 years and though we have too by developing direct relationships with farmers and expanding our sourcing, our commitment to delivering the best roast on the best beans has remained constant.”
“This sale is our way of thanking the community for being with us through our changes, the changes in how we all think about coffee, and generations of folks looking to connect with a friend or a coworker over a shared cup,” Dean said.
Boston Stoker operates six coffee shops in the region, including a location that opened in December 2017 at 215 N. Main St. (Ohio 48) across the street from Benham’s Grove in Centerville.
