Patagonia Opens Flagship Store in Ballard
Blink and you truly might have missed this shop's grand opening last weekend. After a slight delay, Patagonia opened on Ballard Avenue on August 19. The new flagship store is a home base for the brand's Workwear line, a collection of sturdy staples that don't quit. Plus, it houses Patagonia Provisions, its food and drink spinoff that lauds a more sustainable food system through its products—they're not messing around; there's even a documentary about it.
