Local PCC Natural Markets (WSB sponsor) customers have a little over one more week to shop at the current West Seattle store before it closes for construction of a new mixed-use project that includes a new, bigger store. But even during construction, you’ll have shopping options, as noted in this reminder shared by PCC today:
As a reminder of news shared on February 17th, PCC Natural Markets’ (PCC) West Seattle store at 2749 California SW will be closing after May 31st for redevelopment. The new West Seattle PCC, at the same location, is slated to re-open in mid-to-late 2019.
“Many PCC members and shoppers have asked about the future of the West Seattle PCC staff,” said Cate Hardy, PCC Natural Markets CEO. “Because we are community-owned, we were able to locate new opportunities within the co-op for almost all of the staff at our other 10 area stores. While all staff were offered an opportunity to stay with PCC, some staff preferred to stay in West Seattle and pursue opportunities outside PCC.”
During the closure, West Seattle shoppers can still visit the Columbia City PCC and, in early 2018, the new Burien PCC. For those shoppers who crave organic produce, organic and non-GMO meats, and PCC deli favorites like the Emerald City and Smoked Mozzarella Pasta Salads, PCC will continue to provide delivery to West Seattle through both Instacart and PrimeNow.

BACKSTORY: The PCC-site project has been in the works for almost a year; last May, Madison Development Group bought the site where PCC has long been a tenant. News of a redevelopment project ensued; then in July, PCC announced it had reached agreement to be the retail tenant in the project, which also will include more than 100 apartments.
