Help save Susie’s

Dear Editor:

I just learned that Susie’s, Aspen’s beloved consignment shop, will be closing or relocating out of Aspen because Susie cannot find an affordable place to rent in town.

Susie’s is a treasure for locals and visitors alike. I know people who land at the airport, drop their bags at the hotel and go straight to Susie’s to shop.

Susie’s is a treasure, from finding high-quality clothing at an affordable price to the truly kind staff to the joy that comes from finding a gem.

Susie’s is a treasure in a town losing many of its treasures. Let’s bring this issue to the community’s attention. Let’s save Susie’s.
