WALLBURG — It’s not the ending Debi and Ron Palmer had envisioned for their coffee shop and store in Davidson County, but they have accepted its fate.

What’s Happening:Christo’s buffet is back

The owners of Wallburg Emporium & Coffee Shop received notice last week their month-to-month rental agreement will not be renewed at 8363 N. N.C. Highway 109 and they had until the end of the month to move out. The building that houses their business and two others was purchased and the new owner has other plans for the space.

“I want to thank the community for supporting us and loving us,” said Debi Palmer as she sat in an empty back room that used to be filled with one of 22 vendors who sold their homemade crafts, antiques, jewelry, food products and more. “I’m going to miss the customers. We were not expecting this. It came out of nowhere.”
