From furniture to cars
Mike Demuth, president of the The Design Center of Colorado Springs for 10 years until it shut down its two locations in March, has returned to his hometown of Barlesville, Okla. to operate a Tallgrass Motors dealership. Tallgrass Motors is a family owned business started in 2005 by Craig and Sarah Demuth. Mike Demuth has spent the past 27 years in the retail furniture business -- starting at age 19 delivering furniture -- and said at the time of The Design Center's closure that "it’s time to try something new."
