Bryce Phillips Walks Us Through The Portland Store
BRYCE PHILLIPS: THE PORTLAND STORE WALK-THROUGH
By Nick Meilleur, Portland, OR: Exciting times! We took the train south last week to check up on the new evo store in Portland, scheduled to open this fall. The historic Salvation Army building at 200 SE Martin Luther King Boulevard was built in the 1890s and is a sight to behold; we can’t wait to see it transformed into the new evo PDX!
evo Founder, CEO and Oregon native Bryce Phillips took us on a tour of the building, explaining some of the major changes currently in progress. Renovation only began a couple weeks ago so we’re excited to document what’s to come!
Check out the walkthrough right here:
Over the coming months, the building will be rebuilt structurally from the foundation up, and we’re excited to be part of the evolution happening in the East Portland Grand Avenue historic district.
The building is full of awesome relics: chapel art, interesting textures, and reminders of the building’s original purpose: helping those in need.
On our last day, we linked up with our good friends Sam and Ryan at ON3P Skis, a local Portland company that we’re really stoked on and gave them a tour of the building. What followed was a round of Slowburgers from the Slow Bar. Needless to say, it was a game-changer for us Seattleites who had never experienced their mouth-watering burgers.
Finally, here are some conceptual drawings of the future evo Portland store. We can’t wait to see the progression!
