Loveland will finally have a natural grocery store.
In my last post about a local Loveland businessman’s quest to bring all natural and fresh organic food to Loveland, I mentioned he was using locavesting.
Seems things are going well because Jonas Buehl announced he has found a location for his new Loveland venture.
Here is what he said on Facebook:
We’re thrilled to finally announce..The Crunchy Grocer officially has a home! We’re planning an October opening. Happy Friday everyone!
Look for activity at the location they have selected for what many Sweetheart City residents have wanted for years. The new store will go be located at 1461 East Eisenhower.
This is were PartyAmerica used to be in the strip mall on the east side of town.
It is located between Office Max and Santiago’s.
Good luck, Jonas!

Loveland is a sweet city. As of last week, it got even sweeter with the addition of a new candy shop.
Sweetie’s Candy Shop just opened in the shopping center south of 29th Street. I really don’t know if this center has a name. It contains the new Loveland location for Curves and Subway.
A visit to Sweetie’s yesterday was informative. I met a nice man who just moved here from Boston. He is opening the shop along with his daughter.
Sweetie’s has bins with an assortment of bulk candies. (No other place in Loveland has this, I believe.) Popcorn and candy bars are also available.
Near future plans call for serving hot dogs and sodas.
The store is open M – F from 9 to 7, Saturday from 9 – 6, and Sunday from 11 – 5.

Loveland businesses are on the move. So much so, that this blog post has been in the wings for some time now.
If you drive on Loveland’s 29th Street at the Garfield intersection, you have seen a change lately. The mostly empty building that held Fireside Lighting (and was going to be the new Donut Haus before they went to Orchard’s Shopping Center) is not there.
They have a bigger space than the small one they had on Eisenhower Boulevard just west of the Goodwill Store.

Loveland must be on the cutting edge of trends. A recent article in the paper told of a new ice cream shop on Loveland. This one is downtown, and owned by Chef Clay from Mo’ Betta Cajun restaurant. That is exciting.
Late last night, one of my “beeps” sent me a note about a SECOND ice cream shop in Loveland. They both using new (at least to me) technology. It appears each serving of ice cream is made individually. It is frozen with liquid nitrogen.
The first location that will be opened by Clay Caldwell in DoLo is at 202 East Fourth Street (corner of Fourth and Cleveland) where Tenfold used to be. It should be open late spring or early summer. He has not revealed the name of this new venture.
The surprising news I found out yesterday is that Chill Colorado Creamery will be open in April. This new Loveland venture is at 1435 N. Cleveland. This is the property that was previously owned by my friend Jim Loonan.
Chill Colorado Creamery says it is going to be a ice cream shop/creperie/coffee shop
If you are trying to picture this location, it is just west of Walgreen’s in the strip mall. It is the north-most building. It is a free-standing building.
I will try to get by there and also talk to the owner soon.
