The owners of Republic Coffee announced yesterday that they would be closing the coffeehouse on February 8th. 

From a statement issued by Dennis and Sharon McDougal: 
It is with deep regret that we announce Republic Coffee will be closing its doors Feb. 8, 2016 at 6 pm. It has been an honor to serve great coffee to the Memphis community over the last seven years. We have also been privileged to support many worthy local organizations, including Ronald McDonald House of Memphis, Voices of the South, Memphis Recovery Centers, Greater Memphis Greenline, Tennessee Shakespeare Company, Books From Birth and others too numerous to list.

Due to Sharon’s health issues, we have made the painful decision to close, considering a move back to our home state of California.

Heartfelt thanks to our loyal customers and friends. We will miss you!

The McDougals own the building and hope to lease the space to another restaurant. 

Chris Conner opened Republic Coffee in the mid-2000s on Madison. He closed that store and eventually reopened on Walnut Grove. Conner sold Republic Coffee in 2009.
