Find out about The Storefront

I’ve been posting to this blog for a few days now. Maybe it’s time we met.

I write about small business here at The Herald, and The Storefront is where you’ll be able to follow my original reporting along with other relevant news. It’s my goal to keep you informed about small business in Snohomish and Island counties, but I’ll also try to tip you off to trends and happenings elsewhere.

We try to write about local biz-types as often as we can, especially those who are pioneering innovative ways of doing business. If you come across a small business you think we should write about, send me an email at

You can also call me at 425-339-3029.

If you spend several hours a day sitting at a computer like I do, you can follow The Storefront on Twitter. I send out news and other small business tidbits as @TheStorefront.

Thanks for reading.
