Boston Stoker leased the 3,000-square-foot former bank space across from Benham’s Grove in part because it already had a drive-through window in place, Dean told this news outlet last month. Drive-throughs offer convenience to commuters on their way to work and to families with young children in the car, the Boston Stoker president said.

Plans call for closing an existing Boston Stoker coffee shop in the Washington Square Shopping Center on or about Dec. 31, Dean said. That will mark the end of an era: There has been a Boston Stoker coffee shop in the Washington Square shopping center since 1981, even before the Dorothy Lane Market store that anchors the retail center opened, Dean said.

Boston Stoker operates six coffee shops in the region. Its downtown Dayton location at 34 W. Second St. is temporarily shut down while workers repair flood damage.
“We’re shooting for the first or second week of January to reopen,” Dean told this news outlet. “We plan to put in a temporary coffee bar in about a week or two while we’re working to reopen.”
