FARGO — Triple Ax, an ax-throwing venue that opened this winter in the Northport Shopping Center at 2614 Broadway, has closed.

According to a note taped to its door, the business is selling its assets through an online auction with Fargo Liquidators. Bidding opened Sunday, May 29, and ends at 7 p.m. Sunday, June 5. All items must be picked up between 3 and 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 7.

In addition to axes, logs and plywood, the business is selling an assortment of kitchen appliances, tables, stools, chairs and more.

Co-owners Marcel Baumgartner and Erik Kalberg first opened the business in March of 2019 at 5229 51st Ave. S. in Fargo . That location closed in May of 2020 due to challenges related to operating during the coronavirus pandemic.

The business re-opened in November of 2021 in the Northport Shopping Center . At the time, Baumgartner told The Forum that with 16 lanes, the new location was one of the largest ax-throwing facilities in the world.
