The gear consignment shop on 15th Ave NW, Wonderland Gear Exchange, has found a new home in Fremont.
Wonderland Gear Exchange opened in late 2018 at 7750 15th Ave NW in what they knew would be a temporary home. The property had been sold to developers, but the landlord agreed to rent it to Wonderland for 16 months. Now, with construction looming, the owners of Wonderland have found a new home: the former Evo shop in Fremont (122 NW 36th St).
“We’re really excited about this new location. It’s certainly bittersweet to leave Ballard and Crown Hill, because that community has been incredibly supportive of us as a new business,” co-founder Ben Mawhinney tells My Ballard. “With how competitive the commercial real estate market is, we feel very fortunate to be able to stay so close by.”
Their new shop will be bigger than their current location, and Mawhinney says they’ll be “rolling out new initiatives and new programs this year now that we don’t have to worry about being in a temporary location.”
The current shop on 15th will close March 23rd, and they expect to be reopened by early April in their new spot in Fremont.
