We’re Open: Amen Wardy Home
In our continued effort to keep the local residents informed on which businesses are open, The Aspen Times has started the “We’re Open” feature to profile local businesses working through the coronavirus crisis. We want to connect consumers with the work businesses are doing to stay open.
To be featured as a business profile through the month of June, email staff reporter Austin Colbert at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Business name: Amen Wardy Home

Aspen Times: How have you gotten creative during this time? What have you done to keep your customers engaged?
Amen Wardy Home: We post frequently on social media, through direct newsletters to our subscribers and through phone orders. You may subscribe on our website.
AT: What’s the most important thing the community can do to support you?
AWH: Shop locally. We have an incredible selection of home, gift and gourmet products in every price range. There are just a handful of locally owned businesses left in Aspen. Locals and visitors alike enjoy discovering unique shops and restaurants that you can’t find anywhere else in the world, which keeps our city exciting, vibrant and charming. Community support is so essential to all of us.
AT: Where can we find your most current offerings and updates?
AT: What has been the best customer experience or comment you’ve had since the crisis started?
AWH: After 66 years in business, we have never had to close our doors for such an extended period. Our customers have been very supportive, patient and eager for us to reopen.
AT: Is there anything else you’d like to add regarding your business during the pandemic?
AWH: For almost 30 years, Amen Wardy Home has been exclusively located in Aspen. Last year, we opened a new location in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Due to current conditions, it was not economically feasible to keep it open. We will continue to focus all of our attention and resources on our Aspen store and soon online.
