on Redmond Ridge will close Feb. 17, a store manager confirmed to Patch Thursday afternoon.
Glen Kim said the shop has struggled financially because of the down economy, high rent rates, and being in a location with low visibility from the main road. He said the shop has been open on the Ridge for the last 10 years and is currently losing between $100 and $200 each day.
"It's not a viable business," he said.
Part of the problem, Kim said, is that the shop is located in a shopping center off of Northeast Novelty Hill Road.
"To be an espresso drive through, you have to be seen," he said.
Sorrento's offers both indoor seating and a drive through and has served as a gathering place for many Redmond Ridge residents. The only other full-service coffee shop in the immediate area is a in the QFC shopping center.
