To celebrate their fifth anniversary, the owners of Cafe Buunni in New York City decided to close their coffee shop to give staff a chance to celebrate together at a beach day. A regular at the shop Melody Morrow heard that plan, she offered to come work at the cafe for the day and others volunteered to help her. The experience has “reinforced that sense of community” with the customers they’ve had for five years. “If the response I had is any indication, we might do this every year,” she says.
