Pendleton Woolen Mills store to open in Eugene in May | Local | Eugene, Oregon
Pendleton Woolen Mills plans to open a store next month in the 5th Street Public Market in downtown Eugene.
It will be in the space next to the front door of Inn at the 5th, the market’s boutique hotel.
“The 5th Street Public Market and Inn at the 5th is truly a special place, celebrated for the international and local shoppers and guests they attract,” Pendleton President Mort Bishop said in a press release. “We look forward to welcoming visitors and sharing the experiences of the Pendleton brand with travelers from around the globe as well as our neighbors next door.”
Diana Bray, the market’s general manager, said the addition of Pendleton Woolen Mills to the market “fits perfectly with our strategy to diversify our retail mix and expand our customer base. The unrepresented categories of men’s apparel and home products are exciting additions to the market.”
Family-owned Pendleton, which is based in Portland, has been weaving fabric in the Pacific Northwest since 1863.
The 5th Street Public Market’s roots date to 1976. The market is owned by longtime businessman and former Eugene Mayor Brian Obie.
