RICHMOND, Va. (RichmondBizSense.com) – A Fan coffee shop has closed, but one of its neighbors might soon step in to perk things up.

CrossRoads-closing-signSigns posted Dec. 15 at the Crossroads Coffee and Ice Cream at 26 N. Morris St. announced that Dec. 16 would be the shop’s last day in business.

The signs said locally based Lamplighter Roasting Co. bought the business and would reopen the shop in February.

Crossroads owner Will Herring put the business up for sale over the summer. Herring would not comment on the deal with Lamplighter, which has yet to close.

The Forest Hill location of Crossroads remains open.

Commonwealth Commercial broker Jim McVey is representing Herring in the deal.
