The Eagle Run Coffee Co. is no longer owned by well-known broadcaster and local resident Tamara Stanners.Steve Klassen bought the upstart coffee shop in Brackendale and he is renaming it Bean Brackendale.

Klassen, a skilled mountain bike racer, took over the shop on Aug. 2. He said he spent a significant amount of time riding in Squamish while he lived in North Vancouver. He was motivated to live here and operating the coffee shop allowed him become a resident.
