Openings and Closings

Nooch Vegan Market will leave RiNo after today

Nooch Vegan Market, a small speciality store in RiNo, will close that location for good at 7 p.m. today. But Nooch will be back in business in a few weeks -- and in a space that's twice the size of its current store.

Owned and operated by Joshua Labure and Vanessa Gochnour for almost two years, the store stocks local organic food, beauty products, clothing, books and more vegan paraphernalia.

Before they opened their RiNo storefront -- with the help of a successful Kickstarter campaign -- Labura and Gochnour were bringing a small selection of these items to Neat Market, which brings local vendors selling vegan products together on the third Sunday of each month, as well as other events in Denver.

Nooch Vegan Market will reopen in a few weeks -- the owners aren't sure of the exact date -- in a larger space at 10 East Ellsworth Avenue, in the Baker neighborhood. And in the meantime, they'll take Nooch back to its roots with a pop-up shop in Colorado Springs on March 15 and at the Neat Market on March 16.
