Vroman’s Bookstore to Shutter Hastings Ranch Location in May

Vroman’s Hastings Ranch will close in May according to an email statement sent out on Wednesday.

“Today, we are disappointed to share with you that we were unable to reach an agreement with the property owner of Hastings Ranch that was sustainable, due to increasing occupancy expenses.”

The statement is attributed to Vroman’s Bookstore.

The last day of business for customers at the Hastings Ranch location will be May 12.

“As always, we greatly appreciate your support and look forward to continuing to serve you at our Colorado Boulevard location in the months and years to come.”

“We cannot thank you enough for your continuing support and enthusiasm for our next chapter.”

In January, Joel Sheldon announced his intention to retire from ownership of Vroman’s and Book Soup and seek new ownership for the company.

According to the email, the Colorado Boulevard location “is secure and the search for the right new ownership continues,”

When that announcement was made in January, negotiations were ongoing regarding the Hastings Ranch Vroman’s location and there was optimism about continuing the business there.

But things did not work out.

Twelve employees will be impacted by the store closure. Store owners said they were “most disheartened by the impact on our co-workers.”

“Their dedication and hard work made that store successful, and we are forever grateful,” according to the statement.

Company officials said they are doing everything they can to support those employees through continued employment with the company where possible.

“We ask for your consideration and kindness toward our colleagues at Hastings Ranch as we go through this process. Bookstores matter,” the statement said.

“Our top priority has always been to be a healthy and thriving bookstore destination no matter how many locations. We will use this opportunity to concentrate our efforts on making the customer experience at our flagship store on Colorado Boulevard better than ever.”
