Umpqua Moving to Colorado

November 9, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

According to a press release posted over on Moldy Chum, Umpqua Feather Merchants will be relocating to Louisville, Colorado over the next 18 months. Why depart the banks of Oregon’s North Umpqua River? “Availability of a larger labor pool, many of whom are skilled practitioners of the sport Umpqua serves; Three-day shipping to almost anywhere in the U.S., ensuring quicker service to all customers; Reduced transit time to and from overseas suppliers; and shorter travel time for Umpqua personnel to all customer locations.”
