West Seattle business news: Coastal to close for winter hiatus

Tonight, Alki’s peppy boutique Coastal is hosting a Customer Appreciation Night event, 5-8 pm. You might want to go show some Retailer Appreciation if you’re a Coastal fan – the shop has announced that “for the first time since our first winter,” they will shut down for the offseason. The closure starts October 4th and they expect to reopen on or around March 25th. But Coastal insists, “Please do not take this as a bad sign!” They explain why you shouldn’t, in their online announcement.

    I hate to be contentious, but what does one have to do with the other?

    Tom Lin owns both properties, plus Slices & Pioneer Coffee Co. on Alki Ave. The three properties on Alki Ave is where he wanted to build a hotel, a few years ago. However, the Alki Community Council stopped him. Alot of people wondered after he bought the Homestead that he might try to build a hotel there.

    but..the people who lease from him…the owners of Coastal…are the ones who are shutting down for the winter season. I’m sure Tom Lin has absolutely nothing to do with their decision. While people on Alki want to blame Tom Lin for all the ills of the Alki world, I doubt that he is behind this particular thing. Just sayin’…

Sorry, comment time is over.
