ARC'TERYX Opens First U.S. Brand Store in Seattle


(Vancouver BC) - Canadian based outerwear manufacturer and retailer Arc’teryx will officially open a new 2,300 square-foot store in downtown Seattle, WA. Situated at the base of the Seaboard Building at Fourth Avenue and Pike Street the new store will open September 7th, 2013. This will be the first Arc’teryx brand store in the U.S.

Arc’teryx is built upon the principle of obsessive, precise design and production. Manufacturing high performance outdoor clothing, accessories and climbing equipment to the highest possible standards, their products include GORE-TEX® outerwear, down and synthetic insulated jackets, gloves and backpacks.

The new store will open
premiering the brand’s full
collection for Fall/ Winter 2013 and
will offer customers an opportunity
to learn firsthand about the
company’s innovative and forward
thinking design process via special engagement areas inside the store.

“There's a growing, loyal following for the brand and this store is a way for us to showcase the newest and fullest assortment of Arc'teryx products to our consumers, while also allowing them to discover what the brand stands for,” said Adam Ketcheson, VP Senior Director of Marketing & B2C. “Customers will be able to learn more about our research and design processes through hands on technology engagement areas within the store as well as from trained store staff.”


All Arc’teryx product design, research and development is done in-house at their head office in North Vancouver, British Columbia.

“In our own facility, we are able to dedicate time and resources to explore unorthodox design concepts and we have complete control over the development of new products,” said Carl Moriarty, Design Manager for Arc’teryx apparel. “Arc’teryx has a philosophy of design that centers on a product’s intended use. The aim is to create something that increases the user’s enjoyment of the activity. By being functionally invisible, what people experience is the activity and their equipment simply does what it’s supposed to do.”

The new Seattle store will officially open its doors on Saturday, September 7th at 10am. There will be GORE-TEX® Science & Technology presentations along with a special rain room available where consumers can test out the products and learn firsthand how GORE-TEX® works.

Designers from the company’s head office will also be on hand over the day to talk with customers and answer questions.

The Seaboard Building is an 11-story landmark building at Fourth Avenue and Pike Street that was developed and is managed by the Pine Street Group L.L.C.

Arc’teryx is named for the Archaeopteryx Lithographica, the first reptile to develop the feather for flight. Evolution in Action.
