Centennial, Colo. Retailer Compleat Lifestyles Celebrates 30th Anniversary
Denver’s Last Independently Owned Kitchen and Housewares Store Celebrating Anniversary With Two-Day In-Store Event, April 25-26, 2014 Open to the Public
In addition to the in-store celebration, Compleat Lifestyles is offering 30 days of 30 percent off deals to customers. The store is posting these daily deals on its website (http://www.compleatlifestyles.com/)
“Our success is thanks to our loyal customers, who have supported us through times of transition and years of recession,” Stevinson continued. “Without their loyalty, we would have disappeared from the Denver metro retail landscape like all of our competitors have.”
Founded in 1984 by Joan Dennen and Barbara Trexler as Compleat Gourmet & Gifts, Stevinson purchased the store in 2011. In 2013, Stevinson expanded the business from a one shop retail store to a two-facility store and renamed it Compleat Lifestyles to reflect its expanded offerings. Both are located in the Southglenn Square shopping center. The Gourmet & Gifts store is in the flagship store location, while the Home Accents store is across the parking lot in the former location of Twigs Interiors & Design.
Compleat Lifestyles blends affordable living with world experience. The store offers a unique selection of gourmet kitchen products and housewares, gourmet food, gifts, seasonal décor and women’s accessories, with a special emphasis on Colorado-made, USA-made and fair trade products. “While the big-box retailers focus on mass-market products produced overseas, we seek out products that have meaning to the buyer as well as to the producer,” Stevinson explained. “It is our passion to bring awareness to the origins and nature of manufacture of all the products we sell, educating our customers so they can ‘Shop to Make a Difference.’”
Compleat Lifestyles currently employs 24 staff members, many of whom have been with the store for more than 15 years. In addition to its retail offerings, the store hosts a variety of cooking classes and home décor workshops throughout the year.
