Two Freaky Bean coffee shops were closed Friday, one just months after opening.(Update: Hat tip to the anonymous commenter who provided a link to a story in The Bollard about the company's troubles.)
Customers walking up to the Main Street shop in Westbrook were quickly turned
away by a sign explaining the location was closed due to “unforeseen
circumstances.” Owner Gary Woodworth said the shop by Cabela’s in Scarborough
was closed, as well, but wouldn’t comment on details. “The economy is tough for
everybody right now,” he said.
