Main Street Fabric Store Closing – Mitchell Republic

Another Mitchell Main Street business bites the dust.

According to its website, the Fabric and Textile Warehouse at Fourth Avenue and Main Street is permanently closing. The Daily Republic called the store, who referred us to the owner at another location, but the owner did not return the newspaper’s call.

The announcement says Willmar, Minnesota, Spencer, Iowa and Mitchell stores will all close.

“It’s time to close our doors! Come in and shop our end of business sale,” the website reads.

According to the company’s website, Fabric and Textile Warehouse has been in Mitchell since 1979. The announcement does not say when the doors will close permanently.

The announcement is one of a handful of recent closures on Mitchell’s main street. The Brew Parlor, which opened last year, appears to have moved out of its Main Street location. Northwestern Energy also recently opened a new location on Burr Street after serving as a main street mainstay.

There is, however, good news. After Moonlight Bar & Lounge closed last year, The Back 40 restaurant is working on a complete renovation on Main Street. The city also installed two new parks last year, one on Sixth Avenue and one on First Avenue.
