JUICE BAR CLOSES ITS DOORS
After just over a year of operation on Daniel Island, the Juice Bar on Seven Farms Drive officially closed its doors to business at the end of the day on Saturday, April 8. The shop announced the closing on its Facebook page on March 30.
“We love knowing y’all & your kiddos,” continued the post, “and it has been our absolute pleasure to serve you…We are invested in your health and lives, this is beyond tough for us, but we so appreciate your business & friendship.”
When pressed by followers of the page as to whether or not the business was contemplating reopening in a different location on Daniel Island, a Juice Bar representative wrote they were “considering all options.”
The property is currently under contract to purchase, with a May closing expected, and discussions are underway with a business interested in taking over the space.
