tribune herald picture

Did you see our fearless leader Bill in the Hawaii Tribune-Herald recently? On July 13, 2015, an article was printed detailing the story of how Discount Fabric Warehouse came to be and what makes it so special (like we didn’t already know!)

If you’re not on the Big Island or don’t get the newspaper, the article is archived on their website. But, fear not, you can also find it here on our website. Right….here:  13 July, 2015 – The King of Cloth – article in the Hawaii Tribune-Herald

Let us know what you think! And if you ever see us in your local newspaper, please let us know!
