Cragan's to close this summer

SOUTH BEND — An Irish shop near Notre Dame is closing its doors. Cragan's will shut down for business this summer.

The owner, Larry Wittenbrink, says running a small business isn't as easy as it used to be and that competition is growing. Wittenbrink says he has quite a bit of competition from the Notre Dame campus bookstore.

He also says in their 17 years in business, customers are changing.

The 80-year-old owner says he is looking forward to playing more golf and traveling.

The shop is open to buyers.
