Redden Marine Supply opens new Seattle location


Redden Marine Supply is opening its fifth retail location, a combined sales and distribution warehouse site on the Lake Washington Ship Canal in Seattle.

On one of Seattle’s main waterways, the new location is ideally situated for commercial and recreational boaters, the company said.

“Redden Marine Supply is proud to enter the thriving maritime market here in Seattle, where I believe we’ll stand apart as a sought-after resource for local commercial and recreational boaters,” Redden executive vice president Mike Reese said in a statement. “We truly believe our robust, best-in-class product selection and commitment to hiring the most technically knowledgeable and friendly staff in the industry will contribute to our long-term success in the region.”

The 37,000-square-foot space features a 7,000-square-foot retail store and an open-air distribution center.

“We hand-selected this new location because it’s situated in the heart of both commercial and recreational boating areas,” Reese said. “The Redden team is extremely pleased to be setting up shop in the heart of Seattle’s boating action to better serve and connect with our customers.”

Redden will celebrate the grand opening of the new location from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 26.
