An Old Town Fort Collins tire store slated for demolition to make way for a four-story commercial complex has closed and is now being sued by its landlord.

Mountain View Tire Factory closed in mid-December, and now faces a lawsuit over unpaid back rent worth more than $4,300 per month for at least two months at 221 E. Mountain Avenue.

Sad news due to some extreme situations we have had to close our doors. All of us here at the shop want to thank all who have worked with us. Please refer all of your mechanical work to Nelsen's Auto Tech center and all your tire needs to Alpine tire center. Both are located just east of the shop here. Again Thank you for your support.

A Michigan-based company bought the property in 2011, and plans to build a four-story, 50,000 square-foot office and retail project on the site.
