Even the empty stores are decorated for holidays
Wanting a unified and appealing holiday look for stores in the city center, the Downtown Partnership of Colorado Springs has gotten permission from property owners to deck out three empty stores on Tejon Street with Christmas decorations. Officials of the Downtown Partnership and volunteers are working on the former Golf Break store at 120 N. Tejon St., the space at 115 N. Tejon and sections of the former Design Center at 27 S. Tejon St. "Both our planning committee and the arts and culture committee came up with the idea independently," said Beth Kosley of the Downtown Partnership. "The owners and their brokers were happy to cooperate. It will make these properties much more inviting to potential tenants and it will tie together the whole look of the downtown area."
