SEATTLE, WA, August 29, 2012
evo, Seattle’s leading retailer of action sports gear and fashion apparel, announced it is relocating its Seattle store to a new location at 3500 Stone Way N. Seattle, WA 98103 this fall.
evo is relocating to the Fremont Collective building that will include 50% more retail space than its current location at 122 NW 36th Street in Seattle. It will have more parking and easier access to and from I-5, Hwy 99, better public transit service and access to the Burke-Gilman trail.
As with its current location, the new evo Seattle will feature the latest skis, snowboards, skateboards, wakeboards, outerwear, streetwear and accessories. In addition, evo will continue to offer full ski and snowboard shop services such as tuning, mounting, waxing and repairs, as well as its art gallery that features monthly local artists. It will feature a brand new state-of-art sound system from Skullcandy for in-store events and premieres.
evo Seattle will be joining two restaurants, Joule and The Whale Wins and Seattle’s only indoor skatepark at the Fremont Collective, all scheduled to be opening this fall.
evo explores the collaboration between culture and sport by seamlessly joining art, music, streetwear, and the ever-changing sports we love. Our aim is to bring all things relevant to the urban, action sports lifestyle into one creative space. Whether it is on the website, on the phone or in our store, our focus is to make all who come into contact with evo feel welcome and excited about their experience.
