Reno, Nevada -- Dec. 13, 2021 Yarn lovers can rejoice! Jimmy Beans Wool is officially back open to the public at its brand new location on 891 Trademark Drive.
"The new space is just amazing!" said Laura Zander, CEO of Jimmy Beans Wool. "It's bright, open, and airy. The team came together to create a really special space to showcase all of our products. We can't wait for everyone to see it and come shop with us."
The team moved in November from the previous location on Joule Street. The new headquarters on Trademark Drive is located right across from the new Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles facility, which means you can pick up a new hobby before waiting in line.
The building is nearly 21,000 square feet and boasts 3 warehouses, office spaces, and a brand new retail space with tons of nooks and crannies full of yarn and accessories for shoppers to discover when they visit.
"We're so fortunate we were able to purchase the building, which allows us to grow as a team and a business. We can offer a true one-stop shopping experience for both new and veteran makers," Zander said. "But owning the building reinforces our commitment to doing business in Reno for a very long time, we love this area and the community so much."
Zander noted that recent data from the market research firm, Mintel, indicates that home arts and crafts, especially knitting and crocheting, have seen a surge in engagement in the U.S. The study noted young consumers were driving the sales of yarn and that knitting and crocheting products benefited from the revival of "home decor trends skewing towards comfortable bohemian design."

About Jimmy Beans Wool: At the downturn of the dotcom boom, former Silicon Valley engineers Laura and Doug Zander moved to the mountains and opened up a tiny yarn shop in Truckee, California. Jimmy, as Laura is lovingly known, sold coffee alongside the wool (hence the Beans in the name) and Jimmy Beans Wool was born. In 2004, the company settled down in Reno, Nevada where they currently reside today. They occupy an expansive 20,000 sq. ft. warehouse, are considered one of the country's leading destination yarn shops, employ 35 team members, and have built a loyal following and impressive online presence. Along with yarn, Jimmy Beans also provides consumers the most innovative crafting products and accessories, recently acquiring Madelinetosh and della Q, two beloved companies amongst knitters, crocheters, and makers. Jimmy Beans will continue to develop products under their patent pending Jimmy's SmartStix, plus hooks, needles, and notions.
