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."

What is tallgrass motors into? Has the design center completely shutdown or has it been taken over by someone else?

The former Design Center is closed and the building is for lease.

And after they moved from their Tejon street location to the GOG location not too long ago... Interesting...
