A brand new PCC in the works!
Those of you at Tuesday night's Annual Meeting heard it first: PCC is opening its 10th location!
This new store, slated to open in 2013 just east of Green Lake in Seattle, will fill the (literal) giant gaping hole where the Vitamilk Dairy once stood, across from the Little Red Hen and a stone's throw from Rosita's and many a sporting goods store.
PCC will be part of a mixed-use project (PCC, apartments, public space, other retail) dubbed Green Lake Village located between N.E. 72nd St. and N.E. 71st St. along Woodlawn Ave. N.E. and 5th Ave. N.E.
Says our CEO, Tracy Wolpert: "PCC is thrilled to be part of this exciting project in such a vibrant neighborhood." Read the entire press release here.
Fans of the current Greenlake store on the west side: Don't worry. That store is staying put.
(And for those of you who note the discrepancy between Green Lake (the neighborhood and body of water) and Greenlake (the PCC store), it's a quirky PCC thing, not my misspelling :)
The same team that built our latest stores in Edmonds (2008), Redmond (2006) and Fremont (2003) will bring this one to life, with environmentally friendly features galore. Redmond and Edmonds are LEED gold and platinum winners, respectively.
Just think: you could live upstairs from a PCC! Emerald City Salad whenever your heart desires.
See you at the grand opening in 2013!
