I received a sweet call last weekend from Devin McDonald, the new owner of Mr. Mopps in Berkeley. The call was in response to a post I did awhile back about the store closing. Seems people keep walking in there saying “aren’t you closing?” Well, they aren’t! And I am truly thrilled that they aren’t. You see, there aren’t a lot of good, whole-hearted businesses left anymore. Big box stores and online stores are putting so many of these local gems out of business. I am so grateful that Devin stepped up to keep the Mr. Mopps spirit alive.
If you are looking for a real Berkeley treat, go and check out Mr. Mopps, you will be glad you did.
