Brian Heater talks to Rocketship co-owner Alex Cox ; the store is now really, truly closed.
“Our lease came up,” Cox tells me, “and we realized that we were either going to do this another five to 10 years, at which point it becomes a CAREER, in big letters, or not sign on again and do something different. That’s basically it. Of course, there are a thousand variables in there, all of which would be very boring and involved. In the end, the store was great to do for five years, but not something we wanted to be doing until we retired. So it was time to move on.”
While we’ll all be moving on, we’ll miss Rocketship.
