Over the last few years, Missoula has lost a lot of its favorite businesses - some had to shut down due to lack of supplies and employees post-COVID, others couldn't keep up with rising rent costs, and still others were just deciding it was time to call it a day after years of becoming a staple of the community.

The Hob Nob was always packed thanks to its prime location on Higgins and its incredible food - I may or may not still have dreams of their banana bread french toast.

The Hob Nob shut down for good back in November, and since then, their space on Higgins has remained empty... but nothing stays empty for long around here. And now we've got an idea of what we can expect to see in the Hob Nob's old spot.

The Missoulian reports that a company called Mountain Heights recently got a business license for the location.

No word on when exactly we'll see the new dispensary open up, but in the meantime, you've got tons of other dispensary options to choose from - it feels like they're quickly overtaking breweries as the thing people will joke about how many Missoula has.
