Another Cedar Rapids business has shut its doors for good.

Yesterday afternoon, Black Stock Motorcycle Company, located at 611 2nd Ave in Cedar Rapids, posted a surprising update on their Facebook page. It says:

"With a heavy heart we have to announce that Black Stock Motorcycle Company has permanently closed as of 01/06/2020. We'd like to thank everyone for their support through the years. If anyone has any questions please call 319-365-0608."

Patrons of the business have been commenting on the post and seem to be very bummed about the closure. Some of the responses read:

  • Noah Roseland - "This one hurt. Sad to see such a great business close up shop."
  • Boys & Girls Clubs of Cedar Rapids - "Thank you for the support you've provided to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cedar Rapids! We very much appreciate all you've done for us the past few years!"
  • Freedom Foundation - "Very sad about this. Thank you so much Blackstock Motorcycle Company for all you have done for the Freedom Foundation and our Veterans!!! Our Veterans hold you all in the highest regard!!"
  • Tara Smith - "I am so sorry to hear this, loved coming in, had a lot of great memories from great bike nights. Wish you, and all the staff members the very best, and hope everything is ok."
  • Chris Andrews - "Damn, that really sucks! You guys were one of the only places I trusted with my bike!"

Black Stock, which celebrated its third anniversary last year, hasn't issued a statement giving details on why the shop is now closed, but for any updates you can follow them on Facebook HERE.
