It would be hard to one-up the year evo had in 2011. But after winning the TransWorld Business Retailer of the Year and Hardgoods Retailer of the Year and celebrating its 10th-anniversary, the Seattle-based shop managed to once again raise the bar, opening a new store in late 2012, and moving with forward with plans to reopen a huge skatepark as part of the complex its located in, dubbed The Fremont Collective.
As the sun set on 2012, we caught up with evo Founder Bryce Phillips to learn more about his company’s evolución.
We last “officially” caught up around this time last year for your 10th anniversary. It sounds like your 11th birthday might have been even bigger with the new store opening. Tell us a bit about the new space. Sounds like a lot of history there.
