Final call: Globe Bar and Grille will close doors on Saturday

The owners of the Globe Bar and Grille have decided to shut the business down on Saturday.

Basically, the 14-year business has hit a wall, due to the economy and health issues faced by owner Denise Shearer, said Leah Bickerton, one of the Globe's long-time managers.

The location, at 204 N. Division, was good, not great. It's had an interesting history over several generations. Before the Globe, it was Bountiful Foods. Before that it was used by Harmon Glass. The building owner is Julie Clarke, who ran Clarke's Bookstore next to the Globe building for many years. The Clarkes deserve the credit for saving and restoring the old structure.

Way way back, the building housed the Globe Hotel. It was built around 1908.
