A deer apparently tried to help the Stringbean Coffee Shop get a drive-thru window this Monday morning, joked Derrick Davis, the shop’s owner.
Around 9:30 a.m. on Oct. 13, a deer that is believed to have been struck by a vehicle in Galax ran from Oldtown Street to South Main Street, where the Stringbean is located. The deer then ran into the storefront’s glass window and shattered it before running away.
No humans were hurt, as the shop was running late that morning and had not yet opened for business. The incident left the shop temporarily closed.
