DENVER — Tattered Cover, Colorado’s largest independent bookstore, is thrilled to announce the Grand Opening of its store in McGregor Square, the new multi-use development adjacent to Coors Field, on Saturday, June 12, 2021.  


Beginning at 9 a.m. at the former LoDo location, more than 100 people will form a human line between the old LoDo location and the new location at McGregor Square, creating a “bookworm.” From 9:45 a.m. to 10 a.m. they will pass the final book from the old location to the new location from person-from-person. At the completion of the bookworm, the new location will officially open its doors to the public.

“Our new location marks the next phase of evolution for Tattered Cover--after a long year, we’re excited to welcome people back and provide a space for connection, community and conversation,” said Tattered Cover CEO Kwame Spearman. “The environment of the new McGregor Square development makes it a perfect fit for our family-friendly character.”


The 6,800-square-foot store features a grand staircase, harkening back to both the original LoDo store and the legendary former location in Cherry Creek. The space is warm and inviting with significant natural light, and a full selection of books, magazines and gifts. As Tattered Cover transitions from its hosting of virtual events over the last year, the new location will present a robust calendar of events and opportunities for the community to gather in person. 


Following the McGregor Square opening, Tattered Cover is slated to debut a brand new concept, Tattered Cover Kids, at Stanley Marketplace in Aurora, Colo. later this summer. This year, Tattered Cover also celebrates its 50th anniversary, making it one of the oldest independent bookstores in Colorado and making the new openings particularly special. 


The new Tattered Cover is in McGregor Square located at: 1991 Wazee St. Ste. 100, Denver, CO 80202.
