The station was closed between 15 May 1933 and 10 December 1989. Before the reopening in 1989, the station's name was simply Colmschate as Colmschate was a village back then. Some time after the closure, it was incorporated as a neighbourhood of Deventer.

In 2018, a tunnel was dug under the station by ProRail to remove the railroad crossing.
