JANUARY 7, 2014 – PORTLAND, OR: evo, the leading action sports and fashion retailer, will open its next store in Portland, Oregon. The construction and restoration of the 120-year-old former Salvation Army headquarters building begins this month in Southeast Portland.
evo Founder, CEO and Oregon native, Bryce Phillips, says, “Portland is a natural extension for us, part of our broader community. For me it’s personal because I grew up in Oregon. The opportunity to create an extraordinarily unique customer experience in a beautiful building with such a deep history is remarkable. We can’t wait to establish evo as a place for people who share a passion for skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, music, art, travel and the lifestyle that we live and breathe.”
