Highland Coffees extends lease, will remain open
BATON ROUGE - The LSU-area Highland Coffees announced Tuesday afternoon that the shop's lease has been extended, and they will continue to serve patrons of the Chimes Street business for years to come.
The business, located at the North Gates of LSU for more than 25 years, ran into a conflict recently with the building's owner. The business said in late September that they would close their doors for good on Christmas Eve this year as a result.
According to a press release Tuesday, Highland Coffees was able to resolve "differing perspectives and expectations that need to be addressed" with the building's owner and called the outcome of lease negotiations successful.
The business says they look forward to continuing to serve the North Gate community with which they have fostered a close-knit relationship for more than two decades.
