The remote pantry at the Suites on Boulder Highway was closed in the first week of January due to liability issues with the property. The decision was quick and unforeseen. TCMI has some plans in the works and are working with Three Square to acquire a new location in the up coming months with a possible storefront which could house cooling and freezing options for food storage and to get guests out of the weather and for a better pantry experience.
