|Who We Are
One of Canada’s oldest fabric destinations, Mitchell Fabrics has gained a national reputation for its vast inventory and its fair, everyday value pricing. Mitchell’s is a family-owned business which has served a growing market for over sixty years. Originally serving home sewers and tailors, over the years our customer base has grown to include businesses of every description, schools and universities, artists, designers, theater groups, film and TV companies, and community organizations from coast to coast to coast. Located in downtown Winnipeg, Mitchell’s retail space has expanded to over 22,000 square feet on two floors, with warehousing space on a third floor. The history and character of Mitchell Fabrics is reflected in the historic downtown building where generations of families continue to shop.
In a world of fast-paced, impersonal, price-oriented commerce, Mitchell’s offers some shelter from the storm. We operate in the boutique model as a specialty retailer dedicated to our product, using experience and knowledge to serve our clientele. We buy for our customers, offer an exceptional inventory and a wide price range, and bring all of this together under a guiding commitment to excellent service.
Mitchell’s offers exceptional choice in every department. In addition to market basics, we stock many high-end fabrics, offering choices for every budget. Mitchell’s also carries specialty and rare items that are not found elsewhere. We are known for the depth of our inventory as well as its range; requirements for large quantities are routinely serviced without the delay of re-order.
Many first-time customers arrive at our store having been advised : “You’ll find it at Mitchell’s!”. We’re proud that our efforts over sixty years have built a loyal customer base across Manitoba and beyond. Whether the need is for a large quantity of flame retardant fabric to decorate the Saddle Dome for the Canadian Country Music Awards, a fabulous Italian wool for a three piece suit or organically grown cotton sheeting, Mitchell’s customers know they will find the right fabric at Mitchell’s, in the right quantity, at the right price.
We are proud of our staff complement, which includes many knowledgeable and committed long-time employees who take a great interest in fabrics, and who form an integral part of the Mitchell Fabrics experience. Whether their fabric needs are large or small, simple or complex, our customers can count on experienced, knowledgeable assistance.
