It makes perfect sense, a marine store you can get to by boat. Redden Marine, which caters to both the commercial fishing and recreational marine industries, is opening a a new store on Ship Canal in the facility that previously housed LeClerq Shipbuilding and Henderson Boat Company.
Redden, which has been in business since 1959, serves both the commercial and recreational marine sectors. This new 37,000 square foot combined sales and distribution facility will serve both. The storefront at 1080 West Ewing Street is central to Fisherman’s Terminal, Lake Union, Elliott Bay and Shilshole Bay Marina by road.
Redden’s 7,000 square-foot retail store is open to the general public and there is an open-air distribution center that provides an impressive display of the working side of the marine business. There will be more than 20,000 consistently in-stock items, withmore than 50,000 high-quality marine supply items available through reddenmarine.com.
“Redden Marine Supply is proud to enter the thriving maritime market here in Seattle, where I believe we’ll stand apart as a sought-after resource for local commercial and recreational boaters,” says Redden’s executive vice president, Mike Reese, who is pleased with public response to date. “We truly believe our robust, best-in-class product selection and commitment to hiring the most technically knowledgeable and friendly staff in the industry will contribute to our long-term success in the region.”
