Caboose Hobbies Rebirth
Tuesday - November 15, 2016
Many of us this summer we shocked to learn that Caboose Hobbies would at first be moving then later closing altogether. The story starts back on July 18th when the store was informed by the building ownership they would be selling the property and that Caboose needed to move and quickly. Caboose announced a moving sale on everything in the store. Then just a month later on August 17th the owners of Caboose Duane and Johanna Miller announced the decision to retire instead they intended to close the doors of the hobby store altogether on the September 25th. Ultimately the store closed its doors early at the Broadway location on September 11th.
At this point it certainly seemed like a sad ending with no model train store in Denver, then took a surprising twist on September 22nd. On Caboose Hobbies Facebook page a post eluded to an exciting announcement. Caboose Hobbies had a new owner and a new name Caboose which would reopen in a new location (we know now its at 10800 W Alameda Ave Lakewood, Colorado) and it slated to open before the end of the year. It remains to been seen at this point if the club will have an opportunity to renew its long-standing sponsorship by Caboose under the new ownership. But everyone is just excited to see that the store will still be around.
