TELLURIDE, Colo. – Bootdoctors, one of the Christy Sports LLC brands of specialty retailers and service providers in the Rocky Mountains, today announced the closure of their “Main Street” store at 213 W Colorado Ave in Telluride, Colorado. The final day of operation will be Sunday July 19, 2020.
Originally established in 1983 as Paragon Sports, then purchased by the Gleason Family in 2010 and later acquired by Christy Sports in 2017, the location has a long heritage of serving locals and tourists alike with their dedication to personalized customer service and passion for the outdoors.
Elena Withers, Bootdoctors Main Street Store Manager stated “Paragon Bootdoctors has been a staple of Telluride culture and its absence will be felt greatly by our dedicated staff, loyal customers, and supportive community. While we mourn the loss of this iconic shop, Bootdoctors in Telluride will continue to thrive through our other stores.”
The building was recently purchased and the lease for the existing Bootdoctors space was not extended. There are currently no plans to relocate the store, but Bootdoctors will continue to pursue new location opportunities to serve guests in Telluride. All active employees will remain with the company and transfer to the Oak Street or Mountain Village Bootdoctors stores.
“After 37 years, the success of the Main Street store as a gear shop in Telluride falls on the shoulders of those who worked within it. Those amazing people were there every day to share their unabashed enthusiasm with our guests, and poured their passion into providing the best possible experience for everyone who passed through our doors,” stated Buck Smith, Christy Sports Telluride Area Manager, “I hope that everyone who has ever worked at the Main Street store under any banner knows they were part of something special in Telluride.”
Bootdoctors will continue to provide the products, services and customer support available at the Main Street location through their Oak Street and Mountain Village locations in Telluride. For more information visit www.bootdoctors.com.
