R.I.P. NT PDX.
The original NikeTown, launched in Portland on November 21, 1990, is heading to retail heaven at the end of this week.
As Allan Brettman details in a story on The Oregonian today, the cutting edge concept shop which served as something of a corporate church showcasing the Swoosh brand and bestowing checkmarked footwear and apparel to its loyal followers and onlookers alike, is coming to an end. You have until this Friday at 7PM to make your final donations and offerings.
Don’t be sad, though. A new concept store named Nike Portland will take its place, spiritually, on November 4 with a location at 638 S.W. Fifth Avenue in PDX.
