Three Fort Collins businesses have recently closed down bringing up many questions for local residents. Gelazzi, a popular hangout sweets shop, closed its doors near the end of November, but is just beginning to sell off equipment. As seen in the Coloradoan, according to Mike Van Buskirk, director of operations at Gelazzi, the Fort Collins shop was the last of three locations to close. He says that its owner, Jan Horsfall, is getting out of the business. The reasons behind his closure are unknown. The Armadillo restaurant and Beach House Grill closed earlier in the year. According to Lisa Ruskaup, concept director for Breckenridge-Wynkoop, her company bought the Beach House’s lot and they plan to turn it into another Breckenridge restaurant and brewery. Though it’s not what everyone had in mind, many, including Ruskaup, are excited to see how the business adapts to the Fort Collins community.
