MOUNT VERNON WA. The official grand opening of Coastal Farm and Ranch’s new Mount Vernon store is this Wednesday through Saturday.
“The remodel is complete and the store looks amazing,” according to Coastal’s Operations Manager Byron Baule. “We’ve packed the store with 2,000 pairs of work boots, 3,000 pairs of jeans, miles and miles of fencing and over 30 working stoves and fireplaces. Selection makes our store special and unique.”
The store’s grand opening celebration includes performances by local high school cheerleaders and bands, a ribbon cutting ceremony, free pony rides from Lang’s Pony Farms, a free bounce house in the parking lot and a 25 cent hamburger BBQ benefiting local 4-H clubs. Customers can also register to win thousands in Grand Opening Prizes.
According to store owner Buzz Wheeler, Coastal has hired 40 new employees from the local Skagit County area. “It’s very important to support the local community, and one of the best ways is by hiring knowledgeable, smart people who have lived in the area for years,” says Wheeler. “We’ve found a really talented crew and staff and I’m excited to see what they’re going to do.”
The publice is encouraged to check out the new store, and visit with Manager Ken Howe, Assistant Aaron Tueros and the entire Mount Vernon Team.
Coastal’s new store is located on Market Street in the former Wal-Mart facility east of Interstate 5. The store carries over fifty thousand products and includes a large indoor yard, allowing customers to shop for fencing, livestock, equipment and lawn & garden supplies regardless of weather conditions.
Approximately one third of the store is dedicated to clothing, with another third being a combination of hardware, tools, welding and automotive, and the balance filled with animal health, farm equipment, tack, feed and supplements.
