Insurrection Performance, at 8403-1/2 Greenwood Ave. N., is moving everything out of its shop, which was heavily damaged by the March 9 natural gas explosion, and into storage. However, theyâ€™re still open for online business and by appointment at the Phinney Neighborhood Association, 6532 Phinney Ave. N., where theyâ€™ve rented a room for customer appointments.
Over the last 10 years the store has morphed from western apparel and boots to vintage clothing and now to leather motorcycle gear.
This morning a crew from Servpro, which specializes in fire and water cleanup and restoration, was at the store, cleaning and boxing up everything to put in storage. Insurrectionâ€™s Sally (who didnâ€™t want her last name used) told me the blast separated the north wall from the ceiling and then water poured into the back room, making the structure unstable.
â€śThe water damage in the back was a big surprise to me,â€ť she said. â€śWeâ€™ll come back when we can.â€ť
In the meantime, customers can call the store at 206-550-3545 to make an appointment to view off-the-rack items as well as for measuring and fitting for custom orders.
