What may have appeared to be a sad day in Oregon on October 28, 2011 as NikeTown Portland closed its doors for good after 20 years, residents and visitors of the city can now look forward to new beginnings with the grand opening of Nike Portland.
The new 26,000-square-foot, museum-like, environmentally-friendly, LEED certifed, Nike Portland store will provide consumers with an all-inclusive “Brand Experience” and opportunity to learn more about Nike’s history, plus more. The store is unlike anything we’ve seen before with impressive fixtures such as The Bowerman Wall, a 12×7 foot media wall that displays a mosaic of 1,404 images and a hanging Jordan Jumpman statue. Home to a large selection of Nike product including hard-to-find items from Nike Sportswear, Jordan, Running, Basketball, Soccer and NIKEiD, all of the store’s offerings make for a must-see and visit for all out-of-towners.
As the grand opening event also featured appearances from Portland Trailblazers’ forward LaMarcus Aldridge and the release of the Doernbecher Freestyle VIII Collection, we can only expect more great things to take place at Nike Portland in the near future.
