LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A popular Highlands coffee shop is slated to serve its last latte.

Heine Brothers announced Friday it will close its location at the corner of Eastern Parkway and Bardstown Road on March 16.

The company said they made the decision to close the shop when it came time to renew their leases. Heine Brothers' Coffee co-owner Mike Mays said since the company has two shops just 0.4 miles away from each other it made more sense to have one location.

"We had a good 10-year run operating two stores less than a half a mile apart," he said.

Heine Brothers will still operate in their original location on Longest Avenue, which is attached to Carmichael's.

The company also said they plan to remodel their Longest Avenue location.

Mays said, "We'll be celebrating 20 years on Longest Avenue in October. We're excited to give this store some love and attention so that we're ready for the next 20 years."

A new local business is slated to move in to the vacant spot, but the name of the business has not been released.
