Longtime LoDo manager Derek Holland, who's been with the Tattered Cover for over thirty years, is making the move. “I’m excited for a brand-new store where people can come and enjoy themselves and create memories," Holland says.
In the meantime, readers have been sharing memories on our Westword Facebook post about the move. Recalls Richard:
I used to manage the wine shop across the alley for a few years: Wines Off Wynkoop. It was always such a relief to just go find a chair and relax with a snack and either people-watch or graze a magazine. Cherry Creek Tattered Cover was the ultimate location, with the restaurant on the top floor. Doubt anything will ever top it again, and it was wildly popular back in the day.Says Brittany
A Denver treasure for sure !!
I really hate that they are moving locations. The one in City Park is cool, but the one downtown is my favorite and I love the feel of just walking in there. This is so sad to me.Adds Robert:
I so enjoyed looking for books in the nooks and crannies of this wonderful old building. Damn.Recalls Chuck:
This is probably more appropriate for the Cherry Creek store, but it also applied to LoDo. The aroma of newspapers and books. The incredible selection of papers from around the world. Thumbing through magazines. Buying books for Christmas and having them wrapped by staff, and waiting for as long as an hour because so many other customers were waiting for their books. I always felt at peace every time I walked into the Tattered Cover. I hope for the same in May when I visit the new store.Replies Aislynne:
