A store at the Mall of America that sold naps has gone to sleep.

MinneNapolis sold naps for 70 cents a minute. But the nap center brought in fewer than 1,600 customers during its six-month run at the huge mall here.

Owner Steev RamsDell blames the failure on the high percentage of tourists who shop at the Mall of America. He says the store couldn't develop repeat business.

RamsDell still hopes to make money from tired Minnesotans. He says he's signed a lease in the trendy Uptown neighborhood in Minneapolis, and plans to open a smaller version of MinneNapolis there on June 1.
