Broadway Black Rock: Respecting History

Black Rock Coffee goes downtown

Shop opened this month at former Sparks Home Furnishings site

The owners and developers of the new Black Rock Coffee Bar know they’re occupying a rather historic spot in downtown Vancouver, and they don’t want any of their patrons to forget it.

The coffee shop, which opened Oct. 9, is located in the former Sparks Home Furnishings building at 1001 Broadway. The store closed last year after 132 years in Vancouver. The property is owned by Hurley Development.
