An employee at Noah's Bagels
on Northwest 23rd Avenue has confirmed the Colorado-based chain is not renewing the lease at its Northwest neighborhood location.
The closure, which coincides with Noah's 20th anniversary, is just the latest in a long line of business failures
to strike Trendy-Third, whose nickname has taken on new meaning in this recession.
Still standing in the Bagel Wars are Kettleman Bagels,
which opened a Northwest location in July 2008, and Kenny & Zuke's,
which opened on NW Thurman Street in April.
(Kenny & Zuke's offers bagels only on weekends.)
