The Pearl’s popular outdoor gear and apparel store treks over to West Burnside Street, kitty-corner to Powell’s Books. With a relocation planned for late March—meaning you've got another month to soak up the current EcoTrust outpost, with winter sales running through February 23—the new Patagonia store will host an art opening program, titled Now More Than Ever, in support of environmental groups, featuring three artists, three issues, and three non-profits. Says director of stores Joy Lewis: “Our store’s past sixteen years in the EcoTrust location have been amazing and we are grateful for the strong partnerships and community we built there. We are committed to strengthening those relationships and to growing our environmental activism program even more in the years to come.”
