All That looking for new home in Steamboat Springs
February 8, 2017
Steamboat Springs — The "for lease" signs on the windows of All That in downtown Steamboat Springs are not signs the 40-year-old business is closing anytime soon.
"We are not going anywhere, we are here for you," manager Kim Bates said Tuesday.
The business still has a year and a half left on its lease, and the goal is to find a new location.
Store owner Kim Haggarty said Wednesday she thinks she has one of the highest commercial rental rates on Lincoln Avenue, and she's looking for a new home for the longtime business.
"I'm paying an ungodly amount of money to be in that space," she said.
She said she was unable to reach an agreement with the property owner to extend the lease.

Haggarty added she took over the business at the height of the real estate market in Steamboat.
Bates said the business is likely to move barring a "financial miracle."
All That, formerly known as All That Jazz, has been in its current location in the Alpenglow building at Sixth Street and Lincoln Avenue for about nine years, Bates said.
The business used to be in the Harbor Hotel.
Joe Kbodui opened the business in 1977 selling vinyl records and cassette tapes.
Because of the rapid evolution of the music industry, the business in recent years has had to branch out and offer more types of merchandise ranging from clothing to gifts.
"We've done amazingly well with our clothing," Bates said.
Haggarty bought the business in 2011.
