Saturday is the last day Conari Escape Rooms, located at 908 E. Walnut St., will be open.

Conari has been open for three years in Columbia, owner James Caspari said. He said the main reason for closing is the lease for the space is up and he is not renewing it.

“We have another location in Jefferson City that we’re going to focus on,” Caspari said. The Conari in Jefferson City is located at 514 E. High St., Suite 11.

In Columbia, games are currently half off: The usual $20 per person is reduced to $10 per person. Conari will be open 5 to 10 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday.
