Fruehauf’s searching for new location for iconic outdoor-furniture store

BOULDER — Mariah Mayhew, chief executive and president of outdoor-furniture store Fruehauf’s in Boulder, said Friday the company is planning to move the retail store to a new location at the end of this year.

The nearly two-acre site at 1665 33rd St., occupied by Fruehauf’s since 1977, was acquired by Boulder-based developer Don Altman, who plans to build affordable senior housing there.

“We’re looking for a space in either Boulder County, Broomfield or Westminster,” Maydew said. “We will continue to operate here (1665 33rd St.) through this selling season. Our lease runs out at the end of 2017.”
