Craft Architects wins Retail Development of the Year for the amazing McClendon Hardware, Tacoma store!
Craft Architects’ Principal Kathy Craft and Nic Shackleton, Store Development Manager for McLendon Hardware were featured presenters at the NAIOP October Breakfast Meeting & Fall Seminar held this morning at the Westin in downtown Seattle. Their segment, “McLendon Hardware Tacoma, New Store Development,” covered the entire project from concept through completion. The new 68,000+ SF Tacoma store is McLendon’s first new lation in 17 years. The building was a complete renovation and expansion of an existing structure, transforming it into a hands-on, interactive shopping environment for McLendon’s customers.
McLendon Hardware is a local, family-run business in operation since the 1920’s, and this project was designed to showcase their traditional values and commitment to customer service.
