If you have an early morning flight out of Casper-Natrona County International Airport, you will soon only have vending machine coffee to wake you up.

The gift shop at the airport called, “A Few of My Favorite Things” will soon be closing.

The owners sent a message to the airport board of directors saying they intend to close on or before May 31st. No reason for the decision was given.

The current owners took over the lease in September of 2015, following the Wyoming Trading Company, which had operated the shop since 2010.

Airport Director Glenn Januska says they were surprised at the closure, and will soon be advertising the space as an opportunity for the next operator.

He says there has been a slight decrease in passenger traffic with the departure of Allegiant Airlines, but it shouldn’t have been enough to have a major impact.
