Moja Open House a Success

Last Saturday we held our Summer Open House, our chance to thank our loyal customers with some great deals. We put 1lb bags of coffee on for $10/lb and more than 500 bags walked out the door! We were busy from the moment we opened at 9am. We were pleased that lots of people purchased gift cards (they were $20 for $25 in value), and hope that many Dads received them on Father’s Day the next day!
