Old North Coffee, on South Kerr Avenue in Wilmington, previously owned by David and Jessica Winters, has been sold to Terry McCoy. McCoy, who goes by the name "Mac," said he purchased the business from the Winters in mid-November. 

Since that time, McCoy has made a few minor changes but intends to keep the business more or less the same as it was under the Winters’ ownership. The name will remain the same, as will the current staff. For now, McCoy is focused on getting to know his customers and looking at ways to grow the business. 

“One of the things we’ve seen more interest in recently is whole bean coffee sales, so we’re going to be promoting that, along with a flavor of the week,” McCoy said. “And we’re also going to be working on letting people know we’re here, as a lot of locals still haven’t heard of us.” 

Old North Coffee will continue to sell a full line of customizable espresso drinks and teas and snacks from Spoonfed Kitchen & Bake Shop, and McCoy said he is currently meeting with some other local bakers to see about carrying additional baked goods. 

The shop will also continue to feature the work of local artists such as Nicole Roggeman. McCoy said he hopes to bring in more artists, allowing them a space to display and sell their work. 

McCoy is also looking at the possibility of extending the shop's hours and hosting evening events such as musical performances and open mic nights. 

Old North Coffee is located at 1207 S. Kerr Ave. and is open Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
