SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WAND) - A Springfield coffee shop is closing its doors for good at the end of the week. 

Free Press Coffee House, located at 916 S. Grand Ave. W. in Springfield, will have its last day of business on Friday, July 3. It had been open for two years.

 An original shop, located in Pittsfield, has been open for six years and will stay open but with a different focus and new name. It will be called William Watson Cafe and will align with the owner's hotel, according to comments made by the owner under a Facebook post.

In terms of a reason, the owner said "I must focus more on my other responsibilities."
