The Red Silo, a popular gift and home decor store on Fargo's Broadway, will close in mid-March, although its owners have suggested another business opportunity may be in the works.

Bobbi Jo Cody, who runs the business with husband, Todd Cody, announced on her Facebook page that they planned to close down the retail space at 12 Broadway in the middle of March, but indicated that "we are not going away, just restructuring for a new journey."

After opening the business in June of 2014, the Codys' shop became known for its local art and food items, upcycled antiques and furniture, candles, scarves, clothing and jewelry. They also hosted art classes and food pop-ups, took part in downtown Corks and Canvas events and sponsored "Silo Socials," learning and socializing events.

While numerous customers and friends expressed sadness in response to the Codys' Facebook announcement, the store's post did end on a hopeful note. "Dearest friends, we want to thank you for all of your support over the past 7 years," it said. "Please keep following us to learn about this journey!"
