Overland Sheepskin coming to Aspen

Overland Sheepskin Co. will open its newest retail store at 426 E. Hyman Ave. in downtown Aspen on May 7, the company announced last week.

Overland offers outerwear, accessories and home décor expertly crafted from natural fibers such as sheepskin, leather and wool. The company was family founded in 1973. It is based in Fairfield, Iowa.

“We love Colorado,” said co-owner Roger Leahy in a statement. “This is our sixth store in the state and 17th overall, and we’re really excited about Aspen — it’s such a vibrant mountain town with visitors from across the country and the world, and a perfect fit for Overland.”

Overland’s other five Colorado locations include Breckenridge, Steamboat Springs, Telluride, Durango, and Denver.

The transaction was brokered by Angi Wang of Setterfield & Bright.
