FARGO-Section 9 Cyber Cafe is moving to north Fargo, and a floral shop and vintage rental company will soon take over its downtown space.
The internet cafe, which opened in 2009 at 14 Roberts St., had its last day of business downtown on Sunday, Aug. 21.
But co-owner Stephen Sanford said the move out of downtown is something Section 9 has meant to do since the beginning. The business is now preparing to open in mid-October in the Bison Crossing building, 1142 17th St. N., south of North Dakota State University.
"We've always just really wanted to be on campus," he said.
Sanford said it makes sense for the gaming and computer service and repair business to be there because it's convenient for NDSU gamers.
"Our whole goal's to bring high-end gaming to everybody that can't get to it on their own," he said.
The new site also will give Section 9 about 900 more square feet and a parking lot. Sanford said the extra room means the business can carry more snacks and drinks.
Section 9's former space won't be vacant for long, with Love Always Floral and The White House Co. vintage rentals business set to share the unit.
Christy Tehven, owner of Love Always Floral, said her goal is to open sometime around late November after the space is remodeled.
"We're excited to be a part of the downtown energy and to have some great neighbors in Twenty Below (Coffee Co.), and to bring joy through flowers and through our retail space the White House girls are working on," she said.
