Chrome and Yo!: The Next Downtown Retail 'Splosion

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Tue, Jun 5, 2012 at 3:59 PM

Conspicuously timed with the launch of the 2012 Pedalpalooza, Portland gets a Chrome store of its very own this week at 425 SW 10th, with a grand opening on Thursday featuring beer, tacos, and—since most parties devolve into it anyway—an arm wrestling tournament. Chrome is best known for their heavy duty messenger bags, but have diversified into technical gear, accessories (even socks) and shoes—most notably SPD compatible clip-ins that look like regular sneaks:

For those less interested in breaking in their new acquisitions at an alley cat race may want to keep up with the latest development up at the Blackbox building—hop over for the vintage-y deets.
