Tattered Cover opens children’s bookstore in Stanley Marketplace


Denver Ragged cover bookstore will open its first children’s store this summer at Aurora’s Stanley Marketplace, the company said on Wednesday.

The store joins a collection of food vendors and boutiques at Stanley, a former aviation building where Central Park (formerly Stapleton) and Aurora meet, at 2501 Dallas St. in Aurora.

“With this brand new concept on Stanley Marketplace, we look forward to welcoming the next generation of readers,” Kwame Spearman, CEO of Tattered Cover, said in a press release. “Our dream is that every child in Colorado can remember falling in love with a book or some type of book or an author when they visit Tattered Cover.”

The 1,400 square foot store joins The Tattered Cover’s three other locations on East Colfax Avenue, Union Station in Lower Downtown and Aspen Grove in Littleton. A fourth location is planned for McGregor Square, the multi-story entertainment development across from Coors Field. This store will replace the chain’s longtime location at LoDo, which is now closed – although the owners have yet to announce an opening date for the McGregor Square store.

The Stanley Marketplace children’s store will feature low shelves for short arms and a wall centerpiece against the back wall, according to a press release. An artist for the mural has not yet been chosen.

“We are delighted to welcome Kwame and Tattered Cover to the Stanley family,” Mark Shaker, founder of Stanley Marketplace, said in the statement. “They embody everything we believe in. “

Spearman helped buy the business as part of the Folded Pages investment group in December.
