“The cat’s out of the bag,” the post reads. “We are closing our Galwer [sic] Place store at the end of September to make way for some bigger and better projects! It’s sad to say goodbye to an old friend, but what’s coming it [sic] better than we could have ever imagined. Monday’s was built here on some wonderful friendships and incredible customers. The best days are Mondays and there [are] plenty more coming!!”
It’s bittersweet news for many loyal customers, but Broadsheet is excited to see what comes next. Since opening on Gawler Place in 2015, Monday’s has been on a constant upward trajectory.
After two years serving coffee from Melbourne’s Small Batch Roasting Co, owner Jarrad Sharrock began roasting his own house blend and single-origin beans under the Monday’s brand. In 2018 he opened a second store in the foyer of Chesser House on Grenfell Street, which will continue to trade.
The Gawler Place flagship (which moved to the next-door site in 2018) will close at the end of the month. For now, Sharrock is keeping mum about his next move – save for a glimpse of a new, bare-bones tenancy on an Instagram story. We’ll update this story when we hear more.
