This is one of my favorite record labels. I like this idea so why not carry it over to the world of physical sales as well. Every dollar we make today will go to local institutions committed to fighting institutional racism, uplifting black people and removing fascist leaders from positions of power ☮️

Hi. Making the gradual transition to being an open store again. limited hours and capacity will begin next week. stay tuned. thanks to everyone who has helped us out with online orders, gift certificates and encouraging words over the last couple months.
I realize that a lot of people are anxious to get back into the shop and do some browsing. I'm excited to see a lot of familiar faces. please keep in mind that it will be a drastically different experience at least for a while. more details to come.
please shop local when you can. not just records. everything. ✌️

Hello. We’ve got a small fraction of our inventory up on discogs. I’ll be working all week adding more new releases and classic lps. Any order over $75 gets a bonus $10 gift certificate. Perhaps we will get some nice used LPs up as well. Feel free to shoot any other requests my way via the DMs. If we have it, I’ll find a way to get it to you.

Now Playing in the Nightlight Cinema's Virtual Screening Room, Saint Frances (2020) Introduced by our very own Kayla Hutchens.

Kayla loves to laugh and bring her positive energy to everyone she knows. We are lucky to have her as one of our Show Leaders.

At turns hilarious, surprising and moving, Saint Frances forges new ground in a uniquely modern take on the “Summer film.”

Available through the Nightlight's Virtual Screening Room 4/3 - 4/9. Virtual Tickets purchased will benefit the Nightlight Cinema during its closure for an undefined amount of time.

Please follow this link to watch Saint Frances! https://saintfrances.vhx.tv/checkout/support-the-nightlight-rent-saint-frances/purchase

The Square Scullery

Alright guys, on the real - we really need some help in light of the current situation.

Long story short, we direly need to buy a new mixer. A larger one that can keep up better with our bread, rolls, noodles & desserts. A new mixer would also allow for us to start a buy a loaf, give a loaf program. We've wanted to do this for awhile now - but just can't produce that kind of quantity right now with the mixer that we currently have.

A used mixer the size & model we need will cost roughly $1500-$1800, obviously right now things are interesting to say the least, and our financial priorities are purely on our staff & covering overhead.

We're running 20% off (digital) Gift Cards through next week to help bring in some of the extra funds needed to purchase the equipment that we need.

Enjoy a super awesome discount for future orders & help us get that Mixer, No code needed!

Thank you

Angel Falls Coffee Company

Customers, friends and neighbors. Thank you all for the support that you have given Angel Falls Coffee Company during this difficult time that we are all experiencing. Even though both our stores are closed for the duration, we will be able to get you fresh roasted ground or whole bean coffee starting Friday morning, April 3rd through Sunday. Jim will be at the Highland Square store from 7 am till about noon on those days and we will provide curb side delivery to you or you may come into the store - one customer at a time. We are observing strict distancing policy and want people to know that we are doing everything possible to prevent to avoid any close interaction. Rafael roasted coffee today, Thursday, so we have fresh beans in stock. We will have mainly varietals in stock available. This includes light roast, dark roast, espresso roast, Guatemala, Honduras, Decaf, Costa Rica, Ethiopian, Costa Rica, Sumatra, Bali Blue Moon, Inca Trader and Rafa's Blend. Please call me, Jim, at 330 376 5282 during those times to place your order and work out the details and timing of your pickup. You may pay with cash, check, charge card, house account, a promise to pay or if you are in a tough spot, as many people are, no payment at this time. We are all in this together. Thank you for helping and supporting us and we intend to help you in any way we can. Jim and Rafael.

Hello friends. Square Records will be closed for the foreseeable future. we feel it is important to follow the guidelines set forth by people smarter than us during this time. record stores are extremely tactile and social environments and unfortunately that's not what the world needs now.

Please keep an eye on our social media platforms (here and instagram) for any changes. we will resume normal business as soon as it is deemed prudent. feel free to direct message me (Dave) through the store account with any questions you may have.

We've been extremely lucky as a business for 17 years. Akron has supported this shop far more than we ever could have hoped for. that is a fact that is never lost on us.

Take care and stay healthy.

❤️

Hey Facebook fam.. by now, I’m sure you have all heard the news with the Schools shutting down for the next 3 weeks because of some of the challenges we’re facing involving the Coronavirus..

Having said that- We know and understand that our kids depend on school lunches to have a good meal for the day.. in many cases, it will be their only meal of the day..

If you are going to have trouble with lunches for your children while the schools are closed, or know of someone that is going to need some help with food for their children during this time, please DM us.. we’d like to try our best to help..

We are a community business, if our community/friends & families are hurting, so are we..

We WILL get through this together!
God Bless 🙌🏽🍕🙏🏽
