NEWS: Ten Thousand Villages Utah Closing (SLC: April 26 last day open)

TTV fair trade

Ten Thousand Villages Utah Closing

As many of you know the store has struggled over the last few years and the Board was hoping that a move to Sugar House would help improve sales.  In working through the aspects of the move, we had many conversations with the national office of Ten Thousand Villages. Given the financial situation of the store, the national office would not approve our move.  We have worked through the logistics of making the move on our own as an independent store, but the board determined this was not feasible. Unfortunately, the only remaining option is to close the store.

Words seem inadequate to express appreciation for the many hours volunteers have given to the store over the last twelve years and the numerous customers who have made the store and fair trade merchandise a part of their lives.  Thank you for your dedication to the local store,  belief in the mission of Ten Thousand Villages and support of the artisans.

The final day the store will be open to the public is Friday, April 26.  All items are discounted and we would recommend you use any gift cards you may have. Gift cards can still be used for online purchases through www.tenthousandvillages.com at any time.
