Skoops Ice Cream & More will serve its last scoop Monday, after a landlord dispute led to its lease not being renewed, says Eddie Horn, owner of the sandwich and ice-cream shop.

Horn says he wanted to stay because he felt like Skoops "was really part of the neighborhood," but that his relationship with the landlord had deteriorated too much.
Currently Horn is looking to take over the recently closed Taki's Japanese Restaurant on Colfax. If that looks viable, he plans to mount a Kickstarter campaign to try to raise money for the purchase. If not, he'll keep looking.
Horn says any updates on where the new Skoops will be can be found on its Facebook page.
