Pacific Northwest Shop debuts in Wallingford

by Ryan Murray - City Living Seattle

For 40 years, the Evans family has been selling high-quality, locally-produced goods at their Tacoma store, the Pacific Northwest Shop.

In October 2017, Matt Evans - son of longtime owners Bill and Ann - set up shop in Wallingford, offering the same well-sourced art, snacks and apparel.

'I feel like Seattle doesn't have a shop quite like this,' Evans said. 'You have touristy shops, but you don't really have a store where you can buy great gifts made locally for friends and family.'

Evans was raised in Tacoma, in the back of his dad's shop. The office there will always be 'Dad's office,' he said. Both Bill and Ann are still alive and well, and remain passionate about their business.

When Evans and his husband moved to Seattle, they looked at the U-District, Capitol Hill, Ravenna and even Burien. Ultimately, Wallingford proved too tempting to pass up.

'People said 'Why don't you just go to [Pike Place] Market?' And I had to tell them we wanted to be different from those stores,' he said.

Products in the store are mainly from Washington, but Oregon, British Columbia and Idaho all have a significant presence on the shelves.

One of the most popular items are a series of nautical/pop-culture T-shirts by local artist Ray Troll.

Additionally, Evans said that while there are high-end works of art like from local Glass Eye Studio, most products aren't going to break the bank. The average sale is less than $50 and the average item far lower.

'We have long-term relationships with suppliers, so we're getting the same quality goods as in Tacoma,' Evans said. 'My parents opened lots of different businesses, including a cafe, so they passed along a lot of that knowledge.'

While only a quarter of the size of his parents' store in Tacoma, the curated products along Wallingford Avenue present a decent display of what the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

The Pacific Northwest Shop is located at 4411 Wallingford Ave N. www.pacificnorthwestshop.com
