  1. New Location!

    Portland! You've been great. We're excited to announce we are moving locations starting Sept 23rd, 2019. Please come see us at our new address at:

    5755 Jean Rd. STE 104
    Lake Oswego, OR 97035

    Why did we move?
    Being near downtown has brought many new faces to us, but also caused headaches regarding parking, street closures, the increasing transient population and more. Construction is continuing in the inner SE Portland at a rapid pace, and unfortunately our time has come to take a step outside of downtown Portland to bring you a more retail friendly space. That includes having ample parking, an easy step off the I5 Freeway and easy access from Beaverton, Portland, Clackamas, Happy Valley, Oregon City, Wilsonville, Tualatin. Come see our new location and you will see why it was an easy decision to take a step outside the city.
