Water Damage at Pacific Northwest Shop
on 2/8/2010 @ 1:45pm
|Former city councilmember Bill Evans' infamous Proctor Pacific Northwest Shop is closed due to water damage. A note on the door states as such but doesn't have any other info about when they might re-open. If anyone knows more please keep everyone posted! These kinds of things are never fun but here's to hoping it's a minor problem!

|Sad. Its pretty serious.
From my understanding, they have around $100,000 worth of damage and will be closed for a month.
The lost their counters and a lot of inventory, part of their ceiling and much much more.
Let's support them when they re-open.

|Wow, that's terrible. Do you know if it was rain or plumbing problem?|
Best wishes to Bill and family and to a speedy fix-up!

|Bill and Mrs.Bill of many years, shall not let a water problem prevent them both from rising UP above ALL to get the doors open
This landmark with origins to Old City Hall a few days ago (years !) will re-open with a bang and we, shall ALL be there !

|Here's a set of pictures of the clean-up going on at the Pacific Northwest Shop. Looks like they're clearing things out and drying things out the best they can at this point.|

|So what is 'infamous' about the Pacific Northwest Shop? I do not think of it as having a 'very bad reputation; notorious or scandalous.' I find it to actually be quite the opposite.|

|@boearc: Haha! Thanks for the definition! Didn't really give it much thought when tossing out a quick topic. Though any place that sells canned slugs could turn some off I suppose! ;) Plus, was "infamous" but certainly a loveable villian nonetheless.|

|If you had used something better than a fly-by-night plumber, this would not have happened.|

|NS: Do you happen to know what plumber was used so we can make sure to avoid them as well in the future?|

|"was it rain or was it a plumbling problem?"
Plumbing problem. A resident in an upstairs apartment slipped or passed out in his bathroom and smashed the toilet tank. This allowed the water to run out onto the floor for a few hours.
Or so I was informed.

Fredo is there something you are not telling us?

|A great big, bold sign on the Pacific Northwest Shop reads as follows:|
The neon is on and it looks like the shop re-opened sometime this weekend. Cheers to Bill Evans and here's to many happy returns for this local retail icon!

|Yes, the Pacific Northwest Shop, an icon of Proctor, has re-opened. Check them out.|
