Re: Caboose Hobbies

The Denver Post has a major article on Caboose Hobbies' closing:

http://www.denverpost.com/2016/08/19/worlds-largest-model-train-store-caboose-hobbies-to-close/


I gather the notice to vacate was unexpected, and commercial marijuana growing businesses have taken most of the available warehouse space off the market, and priced the remainder too high for a large area but relatively low revenue operation like a hobby shop.


The article focuses on the increasing age of Caboose Hobbies' customer base, and the lack of younger people entering the hobby. It looks like Duane Miller wanted to continue, but his age, the lack of an affordable alternative location, and what he saw as declining business, made him decide to pack it in.


Too bad.....
