The business along Route 286 and its sister store in Penn Hills is closing.
A Plum coffee and pizza shop is closing its doors after three years. The Nowalk Daily Grind on Abers Creek Road along Route 286 no longer will be serving its well-known doughnuts, pizza and coffee. According to the Plum Advance Leader, the Holiday Park Volunteer Fire Department—it owns the property—has terminated the lease of owner Keith Nowalk, a Plum councilman, because he has not been able to pay the $2,600 monthly rent. The Daily Grind is located adjacent to the fire department. A Penn Hills located on Saltsburg Road also will be closing, according to the Advance Leader. For more information, click here.
