Families eager to celebrate Christmas and desperate for a shot of caffeine found a pleasant surprise at Biggby Coffee in Wausau early Tuesday - two employees who had volunteered to work so the store could open as usual.

The Bridge Street location of Biggby Coffee was cranking out cups of joe from 7 a.m. to noon Christmas Day, but only because baristas Samantha Gordon and Leigh Nooyen volunteered to work; it otherwise would have been closed like its sister store in Rib Mountain.
