Get the door, it's the liquor store
Located at the feet of the mighty Rockies, Longmont is one of the small armies of cities that greet the... majesty of the Great Plains. Longmont is surrounded by a cast of towns with intriguing names: Puritan, Hygiene, Gunbarrel, Mead. But Longmont itself is the sanity character at the center of them all, a supremely livable and lovable city that gets lots of well-deserved love. Agriculture was starting to wane in the city around the 1960s. However, around this time an air traffic control center sprung up along with an IBM manufacturing and development campus. This served as a nucleus for other tech and manufacturing companies to come in — now Longmont is home to GE Energy Company and Seagate. Its downtown, on its last leg just 40 years ago, is now a thriving urban center with some seriously stunning architectural design. Two other things worth mentioning here: Longmont has its own municipal gigabit fiber-optic network and Longmont has on-demand-in-under-an-hour alcohol delivery. We’re responsible for one of those two things. Hint: it’s the one with the insane selection of beers, wines and liquors.
