Fargo Coffee Co. has closed its store in Shoppes at Osgood at 4265 45th St. S., Fargo.
The 24-hour Fargo Coffee shop at 1601 S. University Drive remains open, said owner Nelson Wright.
The Osgood store was closed about two weeks ago after being open for two months, he said.
“We just didn’t have enough traffic,” Wright said. “It was really a bad location.”
Another Fargo Coffee Co. shop owned by Kevin Cameron is under construction at 4955 17th Ave. S., Wright said.
He and Cameron were previously partners in the business, Wright said.

Gateway Service switches to Cenex
After 42 years as a Mobil service station, Gateway Service Center, 330 Main Ave., Fargo, is now a Cenex station.
“Mobil decided to pull out of North Dakota completely. We were the last one,” said owner Steve Bettenhausen.
The only thing that has changed is the brand name, said Bettenhausen, who owns the business with his wife, Shari, after his parents, Wes and Georgia Bettenhausen, retired in October.
Bettenhausen said he had several brands to choose from and decided to go with Cenex.
