History

Zinck's In Berlin was started in a two story house on Main St. in 1979 located in Berlin, Ohio. Alan and his wife Monika lived on the second floor of the house while Alan sold fabric out of the main floor. In the early years Monika worked as a nurse at the local hospital to support them while Alan got the fabric business up and running. As the store business increased Alan saw an opportunity to open up a wholesale warehouse and sell fabric to other stores outside of the Berlin area. 

Now after 34 years Zinck's Fabric has three retail stores and a wholesale warehouse that serves customers across the entire United States and parts of Canada. Our unique way of doing business has made it possible for us to keep our fabric prices reasonable. Our customers have been very good to us over the years. We've had the pleasure of serving many people from all walks of life and look forward to what the future holds. 

In July of 2015 the Zinck family sold the company to Nick Shrock, a long time employee and lifetime resident of the Berlin, OH area. Zinck's business model has not changed. We still believe in offering the best possible service, the best selection of fabric and trims, and some of the most competitive prices in our industry. After almost 4 decades Zinck's Fabric is a growing company that looks forward to what the future holds, while being always thankful for the customers who have gotten us to where we are today.
