The Local – A Modern-day General Store and Coffee House made its downtown Enumclaw debut June 4.

The new shop is under the guidance of owners/managers Amy Lundeen and Beckie Kahne. The two met over coffee 17 years ago, have remained friends and even served in each other’s weddings.

Among other attractions, their shop offers Stumptown Coffee and has cold brewed coffee on tap. The owners strive to put local products – made in Washington – on their shelves, adding to the “old-time” general store feeling.

Hours: 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Wednesday; 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday; and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
