New PCC store to open in Bothell next week

BOTHELL — PCC Natural Markets plans to open its second grocery store in Snohomish County next week.

The 25,000-square-foot store is opening Tuesday in the former Albertson’s at the Canyon Park Shopping Center at 22621 Bothell Everett Highway.

The store is expected to employ 130 full- and part-time employees.

PCC’s CEO Cate Hardy plans to attend a ceremonial “pineapple cutting” — a play on the traditional ribbon cutting — at the store at 9 a.m. Tuesday. The store will open a half hour later.

The first 111 customers will receive a free organic pineapple.

The new store will introduce two exclusive-to-Bothell programs: a rotisserie with sustainably-sourced meats and a food donation program where leftover prepared foods will be donated to several local nonprofits.

The Bothell store director is Celeste Coxen, who previously served as store director at the co-op’s Redmond and Issaquah locations.

The Bothell location is the co-op’s 11th store. PCC, which was founded in 1953 and has annual sales of $250 million, has opened several new stores in the past few years, including one in Columbia City last summer, one in Green Lake Village in 2014 and the store in Edmonds in 2008.
