Aww, no!

September 6th, 2007 by tatterdemalion

What else can I say? That’s all I can think right after getting an email that “ will soon be changing hands. All fabric on our web site must be sold to make way for the new owners.” I love the service I’ve always gotten from Denver Fabrics, and I’m very, very sorry to see it changing hands. I guess the owner’s felt like they had enough of their hands with their brick-and-motar shop in Littleton (which is on the other side of the country from me, so I’ll never be shopping there). But it makes me sad because Denver Fabrics really stood out from most any other fabric store for their wonderful costumer service—their honesty, helpfulness, and straight fowardness. I honestly can’t see any way for Denver Fabrics to improve by changing hands. I always felt like Denver Fabrics meant it when it said “we would like to hear from you”, and I can’t help but think that once it changes hands it will just be one more “business” out there, instead of the very personal way Denver Fabrics was run.

It was my favorite place to buy fabric, and I was looking foward to buying a lot more from them in the future.

I suppose you might think I’m reading too much into a simple changing-of-hands, but I don’t understand why all the fabric has to be sold off unless this changing-of-hands is a bad thing. There was nothing wrong with Denver Fabrics fabric, and if they’re selling it all off, it means the new hands aren’t interested in doing things the way Denver Fabrics did. That’s a real shame. Denver Fabrics knew what it was doing better than just about anyone else out there.

I wonder who is buying it, and what on earth they’re planning to do with it.

Oh, well. Figures the good stores would be the one’s to go down.
