Filson, the respected outdoor brand known for its American outdoor heritage and prominence in the hunting and fishing communities, announced today that it will open a new store in the Pearl District in Portland, Oregon this November in time for the holiday shopping season. The new store will occupy 2400 square feet on the ground level of the historic Confectionery Building and is in addition to two other Filson stores, one in Seattle, where the company was founded, and the other in Denver.
â€œOur new location in the Pearl District puts us right in the heart of this energetic, outdoor city,â€ said Bill Kulczycki, president and CEO of Filson. â€œPortland offers the perfect backdrop for residents to partake in the many outdoor activities that Filson customers enjoy. We couldn’t think of a better venue to extend the brand, especially as we are in good company with many other outdoor retailers in the market. We already have loyal customers in this area and look forward to introducing more outdoor enthusiasts to the Filson family.â€
Located at 526 NW 13th Ave, the Portland store will feature handmade custom Craftsman inspired detailing and offer Portland residents the opportunity to experience Filson’s legendary service and iconic apparel and gear known for its durability and classic rugged style. Men’s and Women’s Product includes: outerwear, sweaters, shirts, pants, chaps, shorts, underwear, footwear, luggage, dog products and accessories.
The Pearl District has been undergoing significant urban renewal since the late 1990’s, including the removal of a viaduct and the construction of the Portland streetcar. Now one of Portland’s most thriving neighborhoods, the Pearl District is attracting premier retail, dining and specialty businesses.
