VASSALBORO, Maine (AP) — The owner of a Maine topless coffee shop is planning to close the business after being told his new signs violate zoning rules.

Donald Crabtree owns the Grand View Topless Coffee Shop in Vassalboro. He says he plans to close when his inventory is sold.

The original shop burned to the ground in 2009. The man accused of setting the fire was in a relationship with one of the waitresses.

Since then, the coffee shop has continued inside a trailer on the property.

Crabtree told the Morning Sentinel that he was informed his signs were too big. One advertised a benefit topless car wash.

The shop prompted communities to adopt ordinances regulating where and when sexually oriented businesses can operate.
