Shake and burger fans in St. Paul have just a few weeks left to say goodbye to Snuffy's Malt Shop.

The diner, which first opened in 1983 at 244 Cleveland Avenue in St. Paul, has announced it'll be closing its original location on July 25.

The decision not to renew its lease was taken "with a heavy heart," according to Snuffy's VP of marketing, Dana Bach.

Since its inception 36 years ago, Snuffy's has grown to four locations across the Twin Cities, the latest of which in Bloomington opened in April.

Its other two locations are in Edina and Minnetonka.

Bach told the Pioneer Press that a combination of rent and property tax increases and ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliance issues contributed to the closure.

However, the company is still interested in staying in St, Paul, looking for a "new opportunity" in the Mac Groveland and Highland areas.
