In partnership with the Origin Hotel, Tattered Cover Book Store, which has four stores in and near Denver, Colo., and three satellite stores at Denver International Airport, is opening a new store next year in Westminster, a suburb northwest of Denver. The 5,000-square-foot bookstore, tentatively scheduled to open in April 2020, will be on the ground floor of the Origin Hotel, which also is expected to open in early 2020.
“We are thrilled to come to Westminster,” said Len Vlahos, Tattered Cover’s CEO and co-owner. “The city’s vision for a true downtown–distinct, vibrant, and developed over time–will be a boon to residents, and we’re proud to be a part of it. We also feel privileged to be working with our friends at the Origin Hotel, who are kindred spirits in creating unique customer experiences.”
“We are beyond excited to have Tattered Cover join the Downtown Westminster community. Their history in the Denver market and the customer experience they provide makes them a natural fit for the vision we have for our new downtown,” said Westminster Mayor Herb Atchison.
The new Tattered Cover will have entrances from the street, the parking lot and the hotel, and is at the center of the newly planned downtown, across the street from the recently opened Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and Central Square plaza.
“Our travelers are searching for truly local experiences,” said Walker Thrash, partner at Origin Hotel. “And Tattered Cover delivers a product that is simply different from the rest.”
Founded in 1971 and run for many years by Joyce Meskis, Tattered Cover was bought by Len Vlahos and Kristen Gilligan in 2015. Tattered Cover Westminster will be the first new Tattered Cover location since the Union Station store opened in 2014.
