At Chinook, we come to work every day because we want to set a new standard for providing exceptional value to our customers. In order to deliver on that promise, we need greater focus in our key growing markets. For this reason we made the tough decision to close our Ephrata location.
We called Ephrata home for the last 11 years, so we did not take this decision lightly. We recognize the impact this will have on the community and those who have been our partners through the years. We’re tremendously proud of the hard work of our dedicated staff and the support we received from our customers in the area.
The strong market in the greater Seattle area, the tremendous growth in Snohomish, the relocation of North Bend and the opening of a new yard in Arlington were major factors in our decision to close our Ephrata location.
The store will close on January 16, 2016. Between now and then, much of our inventory will be on clearance. Swing by to take advantage of some great prices on hardware, tools and lumber.
We hope you’ll come visit us at Snohomish, North Bend or our new Arlington location later this spring. You’ll even see some familiar faces. Every person on staff at Ephrata has been offered positions in these locations. The entire Chinook team is humbled by their enormous support and willingness to relocate.
