It was with great sadness that I found a red sign on the door of Moxie Java in Ft. Collins yesterday. It said that due to a rent increase by their landlord they will be forced to shut their doors on May 28th.
Moxie has been here for 9 ½ years and is one of my favorite coffee joints in town (as referenced in our “Best Coffee In Fort Collins” post a while back).
An average of 80 people per week were enjoying performances at the Nonesuch Theater in Old Town Fort Collins. Unfortunately, those numbers needed to be in the 150-200 range to keep the theater in business. The final curtain will fall at Nonesuch on April 9th.
Colorado-based Ultimate Electronics filed for bankruptcy less than one month ago and now they have announced that they will be closing all 46 of their stores. This will put at least 40 Ft. Collins employees out of work.
