"The lease was up and our rent went up,” said franchisee Tara Proudfoot.
She said they weren’t able to work anything out with their head office and said it would be too expensive to move it.
The business employed six people.
Proudfoot took over the business about 4 1/2 years ago and said it had been open for about 11 or 12 years before that.
She said the last day will be either Sunday or Tuesday depending on how quickly their stock sells.
She said there are a lot of regular customers who are saddened by the news.
