Since announcing our new location on Haywood Road and launching our crowdfunding campaign two days ago, our co-operative has received some great local media attention!
Firestorm Café and Books is coming back with a bang — revamped, refurbished — and in West Asheville.
Soon to be located at 610 Haywood Road (formerly home to Pro Bikes), Firestorm Cafe and Books originally opened downtown in March 2008 in the Commerce Street space now occupied by the new Ethiopian restaurant Addissae. In April 2014, Firestorm’s worker-owners closed its downtown location to carry out a new vision for the cooperative business.
Kim: You are listening to the Asheville FM News Hour on AshevilleFM.org. It is my pleasure to have here in the studio part of the Firestorm Collective with representatives Mira and Libertie. Thank you so much for joining us on the show!
Libertie: Thank you for having us.
Kim: Can you tell us a little about the Firestorm Collective and as we anticipate the new location here in West Asheville, a little bit about how your collective works together.
