Blaming a "horrible reception" in downtown Hagerstown, the owners of South Beach Coffee Shop closed Monday after just six months.
The business, at 15 W. Washington St., will move to Frederick, Md., said co-owner Tom Sutton. An exact location hasn't been chosen.
"We're going to a town where they'll appreciate what we have to offer," Sutton said.
Sutton, a Hagerstown native, had high hopes for the coffee shop, which opened in October offering cappuccino, espresso and other specialty coffees.
But he complained that the business got no support in downtown Hagerstown.
"I could have made more money cleaning car windows with a roll of paper towels and a bottle of Windex," he said.
