Free parking for customers can be found in the building’s parking lot just south of the building on MLK.
Designed as a community gathering space, the store regularly hosts events, monthly art shows featuring pieces from action sports athletes and brands, fundraisers, movie and music premieres, and parties. evo works directly with organizations like the Northwest Avalanche Center to provide free Avalanche Safety clinics throughout the season and hosts a variety of other fundraising events throughout the year.
Founder and CEO Bryce Phillips, who grew up in Roseburg, OR said, “Portland is a natural extension for us, part of our broader community. The opportunity to create an extraordinarily unique customer experience in a beautiful building with such a deep history is remarkable. We want to establish evo as a place for people who share a passion for skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, surfing, biking, music, art, travel and the lifestyle that we live and breathe.”
