INDIANAPOLIS — A coffee shop in Indianapolis will open their doors on Christmas Day for those who would otherwise spend the holiday alone.

From 12-3 p.m. on Christmas Day, Neidhammer Coffee Company, at 2102 E. Washington St., will be offering free coffee and doughnuts to those who come to the store.

John Hobleman, general manager of Neidhammer Coffee Company, said he asked employees if anyone would be able to work on Christmas Day.

"We put it out to our employees is anybody available for Christmas,” Hobleman said. “Four of our employees were actually going to be alone for Christmas. They responded very excitedly about it and we put it together from there."

The decision to keep their doors open on Christmas Day was inspired by a picture of a sign on Facebook that said “We are open on Christmas Day. If you are alone, pop in for a hug and a mince pie.”

Becky Poselwaite, a customer who goes to the coffee shop, said she thinks it’s a fantastic idea.

“I wish more people would open doors like this as well,” Poselwaite said. “I now several people who would like to stay here for Christmas. They have nowhere else to go.”
