Shuttered at the end of May, John Shackleford’s Rain City Coffee opened June 11 as Rust Coffee Lounge. At the corner of Northeast 41st Avenue and Tillamook Street, Rust Coffee Lounge is under the general managership of Melissa Park.
Shackleford announced his retirement with praise for those who helped him make “Rain City the joy it is. Karen who helped grow the dream, Stephanie for the logo and menu boards, Ben, Catie and Natalie at the start and Warren, Lydia and Sara at the end.”
He wished Melissa and Ben the best in their new venture, and had special words for Rain City’s customers: “I can’t thank the people of Hollywood enough for making us a part of your community and a small part of your life.”
