Many people across the Valley are excited about the news of a new brew-pub slated to open up in downtown Scottsbluff next year; and rightfully so. It is always better for our local economy to have businesses opening rather than closing, and a business of this type could be just the thing needed to reinvigorate the downtown area.
However the news about a new brew-pub isn’t great for everybody; for the past 17 years Marc Harbour has managed Homestake Coins and Antique at 1824 Broadway.
He says that last Monday his landlord told him his lease would be up- and would have to find a location. “Flyover Brewery” is set to begin construction at this location in the coming months.
Harbour says it was a low blow, and now he’s working on clearing out inventory to make the move to a much smaller location one unit south. Harbour is having a “Lost the Lease” sale – starting with 20% off nearly everything store wide in an effort to find these treasures a new home while downsizing for his move.
His store has something for everybody: antiques and collectibles, vintage beer signs, countless albums, home goods, and coins. There are literally more than 10,000 items in his store, but only half will be able to fit in his new location.
Harbour notes he’s thankful he was able to find a new location, but does not relish having to make the move.
