According to a sign posted on the door, new store Ballard Reuse it set to open in the RE Store space (1440 NW 52nd St) the day after its closure on June 15th.
After much deliberation, The RE Store Board decided to close the Ballard store after deciding that “construction and demolition waste issues are being adequately addressed by other businesses and organizations in the Seattle area.”
The store is set to close after serving the neighborhood for 15 years.
The posted sign states that Ballard Reuse, a for-profit employee owned store, is set to open in the space on June 16 to continue to provide recycled and reused building materials to the Ballard neighborhood.
“We will look and feel very similar but we will try to improve upon all the great things we’ve done as The RE Store over the past 15 years,” writes Ballard Reuse management on the sign.
The My Ballard team will keep readers up to date with more information once the store is up and running later this month.
