After the doors of Uncle Bobbie's Coffee & Books closed due to the coronovirus pandemic, there was a level of uncertainty about how the business would stay afloat.
But after a GoFundMe was set up to raise funds to cover costs, the initial goal of $25,000 was shattered with donation pouring in over $65,000. The cult following of loyal customers have all pitched in to protect the coffee shop which has become a staple in the Northwest Philly community.
So although the doors of the store remain closed to ensure safety of the staff and customers, the spirit of Uncle Bobbie's is being kept alive by the hundreds of customers continuing to buy books and donate to its GoFundMe campaign.
