Nike to close downtown Seattle store
Nike is closing its downtown Seattle store following over two decades of business.
The location at Sixth Avenue and Pike Street, which first opened in 1996, closed on Thursday.
Nike has not publicly provided a reason for the closing, but Seattle has recently been victim of a climb in violent crimes and homelessness.
According to the Downtown Seattle Association (DSA), since the start of the pandemic in March 2020, around 500 street-level businesses closed and around 300 new businesses opened in downtown Seattle. Other Seattle stores to close include Starbucks, Seattle Credit Union, and a host of local small businesses.
Looking ahead, the company is set to open a new full-scale store in Bellevue Square. Other Nike stores near by include the Nike clearance store in Auburn and the Nike factory store in North Bend.
