New Store Announcements
Who: Second Use Building Materials
What: We've moved!
When: We opened the new store Thursday, Oct. 11.
Where: 3223 6th Ave. S., Seattle, 98134 (SoDo). The location is on 6th and Horton, just north of the West Seattle Bridge and just west of I-5. Note, if coming down 1st Avenue or 4th Avenue, you can cut over only on Lander and Spokane St. The site is the former Alaskan Copper building, just south of the Franz...
Leaving South Park was a mixed bag for Second Use staff. Everyone was excited about the new space and the opportunity it would bring, but it was very sad to leave the community that had become home 15 years earlier. However, we took solace in the fact that we would only be three miles north, and we hope our South Park friends will come with us to the new space.
In the words of Second Use co-owner Patrick Burningham, "While everything is butterflies and rainbows at the new space, I...
Please see below for a schedule of events for the final stretch of Second Use's move to SoDo.
- Wednesday, Oct. 10 - Second Use's South Park location will be closed for the day, in order to stock materials at the new space.
- Thursday, Oct. 11 - Second Use will open the doors at the new space in SoDo! Come see us at 3223 6th Ave. S., Seattle, WA 98134. This will be Second Use's new home from here out. However, you may continue to shop at the...
One of the most dramatic differences between the old space and the new space is the uniformly colored racking. Staff has spent hours on end scraping, sanding and painting our many racks. The hope is that it will decrease Second Use's visual noise and allow customers to view merchandise better. There was a lot of discussion about whether it was worth the huge labor investment, but staff feels it was worth it. It gives the new space a much brighter, polished look.
The long-awaited racking has been put into place. On a sidebar, Receiving Crew member Sheena is adorable.
Slowly but surely, the new store in SoDo is taking shape. Visitors are starting to see hints of what it will look like when it's fully functional. For example, there is now a sliding door to the customer check-out area, the warehouse is beginning to fill up, and most importantly, racking arrived! At long last, we can begin to fill the shelves and spaces.
Second Use's final moving sale is in full swing! Visit the South Park store from now until its closure in early October for huge blow-outs. That includes
- 20% off everything in the store - now-Sept. 23
- 30% off everything in the store - Sept. 24-30
Take a peek at what's in stock here. Not included in the moving sale are fish pavers, Mac flooring, Mac beadboard, burlap...
Let there be light! Second Use is very proud to show off its just-built lighting grid at the new space in SoDo. It will hold 115 hanging lights in one consolidated area. This new set-up will make it easier to view what's available and pick out favorites. Receiving Crew lead Wes Isbell designed it with his background in structural engineering. Arguably most remarkable about the lighting grid is the fact that though it's hanging by overhead chains, Isbell designed it such that it will not swing-- a huge...
Mark your calendars for Saturday, Oct. 13 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., when we will host our grand opening party in the new SoDo location. We'll provide snacks, music and sales. Everything in the store will be 10 percent off. Come one, come all!
We know we will throw the grand opening party Oct. 13, but we plan to begin operating in the new space a couple weeks prior to the party. Unfortunately, that date remains to be determined. We are first waiting to see when construction wraps up, when racking...
