The Chocolate Iguana on 4th Avenue to close

TUCSON, Ariz. - Chocolate Iguana, a coffee, tea, and pastry shop on 4th Avenue announced they will be closing.

This store has been selling sweets and drinks on the corner of 6th Street for 27 years.

"I just want to thank the city, I want to thank our customers, our extended family neighborhood for 27 spectacular, incredible years," owner Marci Conklin said.

In an announcement on Facebook, the reason for the closure is that the "current owner of the property wants our space. He has leased it out to a Colorado-based coffee shop for which he is an investor."

"Our lease has been terminated, and we have 30 days now to vacate the property," Conklin said. "Chocolate Iguana will be done when we close our doors, because I really do not have the money to relocate."
