One of Downtown Renton's longest-running businesses will soon shutter it's doors. Brightpink and green posterboards covered Renton Western Wear's windows late Thursday night in preparation for the store's final sale, February 8.
Often described as an "anchor tenant" by other longtime busiess owners, Patch wants to know how you'd describe Renton Western Wear. What does it's closure mean to you, and what does it mean for Downtown Renton?
Here's a copy of the letter posted to the storefront's window and on the Renton Western Wear web site:
