Changes Ahead In the Denver Retail Scene as Goldyn Transitions Into True Boutique
Award-winning Denver-based women’s boutique, Goldyn, is changing as we know it. The noteworthy 11-year old shop is saying farewell, and passing its torch on to True boutique. As of early March 2018, True, a Colorado-based women’s boutique with a focus on holistic wellness, will take over the space that currently houses Goldyn at 2040 West 30th Avenue in Denver, Colorado. The LoHi Marketplace at Olinger will be True’s second and newest location (the first is located in the Stanley Marketplace in Stapleton); it will be owner Shana Colbin Dunn’s 5th retail location as she is also the owner and founder of Kismet, which currently has 3 Colorado stores.
A staple in the LoHi neighborhood of Denver, Goldyn has been at the forefront of pushing the envelope in the Denver fashion scene since 2007. Championing independent, fashion-forward and highly conceptual designers and artists, Goldyn started out as an online boutique, eventually opening a brick and mortar location in 2011. Goldyn’s well-edited shop has also been strongly enmeshed in the local Denver scene, mentoring and supporting local designers, playing host to community events ranging from designer trunk shows to fashion shows, charity benefits, concerts and artist exhibits, making the store a local cultural hub.
As both Goldyn’s owner Vanessa Barcus and True’s owner Shana Colbin Dunn will describe it, their meeting was entirely synchronistic. The two stores and their respective owners also share the same set of core values – something that was of extreme importance to the two women. Those values namely include operating with kindness, compassion and integrity, and honoring every woman’s higher self. This natural alignment made the decision to transition Goldyn into True an easy evolution. ShopGoldyn.com
