:wave: DB, and Linda! Nice to be able to talk to you all. Signed, a devoted customer who has been bitten badly by the art supply addiction bug. :D

Hi Linda...I'm a Dick Blick fan from the UK....Welcome to WC!
Now....could you please tell your bosses that I want one in the UK please! I have ordered from you on a number of occasions...and would rather not have to travel quite so far for my supplies:wink2: ....So anywhere in the UK is fine, as I'm sure you will still have ordering online over here too!

There's a wonderful retail space available in historic downtown Poulsbo in WA state available. (On the Olympic Penninsula). Plenty of room, two floors, huge windows and is right next to the largest parking lot in town. Right on the Libery Bay waterfront with a wonderful park right across the parking lot.

Space for demos/workshops/classes would be great too, not a lot going on outside of the Parks and Rec programs, the college (expensive), and Liberty Bay College of Art (one woman who only teaches drawing - beginning and intermediate).

Major tourist season from early Spring to late Fall and local artists do very well so wall space would bring in revenue too.

The only local competition is a small supply shop about 2 miles away off the highway and the art supply store at the Northwest College of Art (which many do not know about). Of course Daniel Smith and Utrecht are over in Seattle but the ferry ride makes the prices prohibitive. We'd love to see you here!

:wave: You've been such a huge supporter of this site for so long and we're really, really grateful! Your store in Pasadena is my home-away-from-home, so at least you're getting a bit of your sponsorship money back from time to time! :lol:
