SEATTLE — The Nike store in downtown Seattle will be closed Friday, January 20.
Nike is tracking several other downtown businesses that have closed recently, including multiple Starbucks locations.
The store located at 6th Avenue and Pike Street was opened in 1996.
A sign in the store’s window posted on Tuesday reads: “We look forward to serving you at Nike.com.”
According to Nike’s website, the next closest locations will be the Nike factory store in Bellevue, the Nike clearance store in Auburn and the Nike factory store in North Bend.
The closures come as Seattle is trying to recover from its pandemic shutdown.
According to the Downtown Seattle Association, November 2022 had more than 2.1 million visitors, still lower than the pre-pandemic figure in November 2019, but slightly higher than last year. The weekend after Thanksgiving, the downtown retail hub had more than 115,000 visitors, up 6% from 2021 figures.
