Fresh Place Fridays- Moving to Commerce City

MP900438871At Exodus Moving and Storage we have been committed to serving our customers for several years now from our base in Fort Collins. We are excited to have just opened our new office in the Denver area. It’s great to be a part of one of the most vibrant metros in the fine state of Colorado. Our new Commerce City address comes complete with a new area full of new people and a new community we have the opportunity to get to know. Gaining knowledge about this place in an effort to better serve the people within it, we thought we might take this Fresh Place Friday opportunity to share a little bit about the new spot we call home.

The History

The beginning of Commerce City was actually the result of a historical ride through town. Carried on horseback, a kid by the name of Herbert Hast Jr. gathered those inhabiting the land to create an important meeting. Voting for their incorporation in 1952, Commerce Town was established. It wasn’t until a decade later when the town decided to become a city.

Demographics

Located in Adams County Colorado, this thriving areas population has been growing consistently in leaps and bounds since the year 2000. A suburban neighborhood just to the northeast of Denver, it boasts a cohesive combination of residential and industrial community. Hosting over 42,000 people, Commerce City covers 41 square miles and yet prides itself on maintaining a small town feel in spite of the fact that it is the 19th largest city in Colorado.
