Fabricland and their sister company, Metropolitan Window Fashions have been in business for 85 years, continuously owned by the same family. Heyman is the owner and grandson of the founder. “Our business is now 75% window fashions and 25% fabric,” Heyman told the Chamber. “The building we occupied for the past 50 years was outdated and we are delighted to move into a 9,000 square foot showroom, the largest window fashions showroom in New Jersey, that highlights our Hunter Douglas Gallery, along with custom and readymade drapery displays.” The old location in North Plainfield is being demolished and will become a convenience store.
Two businesses operate under one roof. “Metropolitan Window Fashions may have the larger share of the business because of our in-home decorating service, but Fabricland has the larger footprint in the new store,” Heyman said. “We will continue to stock dress, quilt, drapery and upholstery fabrics.”
Heyman said Fabricland will continue to offer fabrics, notions, sewing machines and sewing classes for adults and children in the Green Brook location.
Metropolitan Window Fashions has locations in Green Brook, Route 17 in Paramus and on the Upper West Side in Manhattan.
