A shop nestled in the historic Taos Square of Georgetown is making a move to Denver. Renovations are still underway at the historic building where Sabel will open, but co-owners Tyler and Justin Fukae hope to open up shop at the end of May or in early June.
The married couple first opened the Georgetown location in March of 2021 and later decided to look for retail space in the area with more foot traffic. “We’ve been actually seeking out a location on the main street, but that process has been taking a little bit longer than we anticipated,” Tyler told What Now Denver.
They began to search for a spot in the Denver Metro area and decided on 1223 S. Pearl St. “We thought we’d fit in well and complement the other businesses in the area,” Tyler said. They also like the walkability of the neighborhood.
The Fukaes recently decided to close Sabel in Georgetown to focus on moving into the Denver location. “We are hoping to reopen in Georgetown at a later point, but for now, it just seemed to make sense to close that down temporarily,” Tyler said.
The queer and veteran-owned store offers a variety of products. “Bath, body, and home is the way we describe it. But there’s also a larger range. We sell greeting cards, prints that local artists have created. We might even institute a small, locally-made snack section,” Justin explained. “It will almost be like a general store in a sense as far as the range of products.”
With the new Denver location, Sabel will make conscious shopping simpler for those in the community with 100% of its products sourced in Colorado. “That way we can support different makers, artists, and brands within the state. And then sustainability is also a core value for us,” Tyler said.
Sabel will introduce a comprehensive, bulk resale selection of various household cleaners, skin care, body wash, and more. They also plan to offer a candle refill option to reuse jars and other vessels to provide a sustainable option for Sabel customers.
The Fukaes live in Denver and are excited to bring Sabel to a new community to meet the needs that are present. Sable will not only be a space to find bath, body, home products, and more, but it will serve a community of creators.
