Nearly two years after Argonaut Liquors moved into its new store at 760 East Colfax, the shell of the old one next door could finally come down.
A fence surrounded the property today, and demolition material was on hand; a tangle of zoning restrictions had prevented Argonaut from tearing it down earlier.
A new retail complex and a parking lot are planned for the site. One possible tenant is Biker Jim, who would like to open a walk-in hotdoggery on the premises.
