Off into the sunset… THAT STORE Closing

Here ends the era for our ‘local wooden shed of woven delights’. THAT STORE last week, began the process of closing down its stores throughout Melbourne and Sydney. It was quite sudden and it is very unfortunate to see the stores go, along with my job haha!

THAT STORE as well as BluBird Denim Store are among the denim outlets that closed their doors this year in Sydney; oh yeah, and a few Just Jeans stores or something right…?! Here’s hoping that Denim Co. will look into purchasing some boutique and denim-head-friendly jeans.

There are still stores out there tucked away in the streets of Sydney that can fix you up with your denim hits. HALFSLEEVE, Via Alley, CoRLection, Route 66 and Harrolds.

For all alteration customers, you can still contact me via email and I can make arrangements in regards to collecting your jeans for alterations.

Here to serve… Sydney and neighbours.


For those in-the-know, and those who care, the denim community in Sydney is set to expand.

In the near future, this blog will become your local denim guide and will hopefully teach you a few things about denim jeans, the art of handcrafted goods, and the denim-obsessed community hidden in our city.

Currently working as the store manager for THAT STORE in Chatswood, I have come across many denim detail-obsessed fanatics. It’s been good to have met you all… and honestly, quite a relief.

As many of you may know, I look after some of the more specialised alterations and repairs for THAT STORE. Yes, also the chainstitching service! If you had any questions, feel free to contact me directly at m@mikhailzenon.comĀ  – Alternatively, you may contact THAT STORE in Chatswood or even drop by and have a chat.

I will elaborate more on these services and slowly share my knowledge and experience with everything denim (as I hope you all will too!).
