August 22, 2019, Denver, Colorado—Tattered Cover Book Store announced today that it is partnering with the Origin Hotel to open a new location in Westminster, Colorado, a city northwest of Denver. The store is tentatively slated to open in April 2020, and will be the first new Tattered Cover location since the business opened a store in the refurbished Union Station transportation hub in July 2014.
“We are thrilled to come to Westminster,” said Len Vlahos, Tattered Cover’s Chief Executive Officer 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.”
The new Tattered Cover will occupy slightly more than 5,000 square feet of space on the ground level floor of the Origin Hotel, and will have entrances from the street, the parking lot, and internally from the hotel. The store will be located 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.”
Tattered Cover Westminster will feature a team of passionate and knowledgeable booksellers, a lovingly curated selection of books and book-related merchandise, and a variety of author and non-author events, all in the cozy living room-like environment for which Tattered Cover has become so well known. The store is planning to be open normal retail hours every day of the year other than Thanksgiving and Christmas. The location will also participate in the very successful Friends of Tattered Cover membership program.
