Blake's Cafe & Cupcakery, 1840 Town Park Blvd., Green, has announced on its Facebook page that it will be closing on Friday, Feb. 15.
Owners Marcie and Derke Williams opened the shop in 2009 in the former Arabica space just off Massillon Road.
Here is what their Facebook post read: "After 4 years of making some lifelong friendships, interacting with the most amazingly loyal customer base and working with an incredibly dedicated staff, we have come to the difficult decision to close Blake’s.
"Owning Blake’s has given our son opportunities to interact and develop socially that are irreplaceable. Thank you to each and every person who took the time to talk with and encourage him, his personality will forever be molded by your kindness and generosity "and we are forever grateful.
For 12 of the 14 years we have been married, the majority of Blake’s life, we have owned a business. As we close this chapter, we are looking forward to relaxing and being able to spend quality time together without the worry that comes with business ownership. Thank you again, the memories are everlasting. Derek & Marcie"
The couple opened the shop in large part to give their son Blake a chance to interact with others and improve his socialization skills.
