Store front

Today, Tuesday April 1st marks Sub Pop Records’ 26th anniversary, and we’re celebrating by announcing our latest endeavor, the grand opening of the new Sub Pop retail store at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in SeaTac, Washington!

The Sub Pop retail store will have something for everyone, featuring a variety of Sub Pop-related merchandise including music, apparel, books, special travel items, art and more.  Perfect for last minute mementos or to create a tuneful travel experience. The store’s general manager, Julie Butterfield, says of the outlet, “The fine folks at the Port of Seattle and Sea-Tac International Airport are dedicated to expanding the local flavor and culture at the airport. There are already great local businesses in place and we are so excited to join the family.”

The Sub Pop retail store is scheduled to open May 1st, and will be located in the Central Terminal near the entrance to concourse C. The store will be open 365 days a year, with hours of operation from 6 a.m.- 10 p.m.  

Sub Pop is proud to be a part of Sea-Tac’s award-winning Dining & Retail program, which focuses on providing the traveling public and airport employees with shops, restaurants and services that exceed their expectations for customer service, quality, variety, affordability and that reflect a Pacific Northwest sense-of-place.  The program includes well-known national brand names as well as local favorites to meet a variety of needs and tastes.

Additionally, Sub Pop takes pride in its role as a member of the Pacific Northwest music community. Our vision is to help nurture and support artistic expression and creativity that we believe makes it extraordinary. The private/public partnership and effort between Sea-Tac Airport, the Seattle Music Commission, and PlayNetwork, and its comprehensive program to enhance the traveler’s experience through exposure to the diverse variety of musical artists from within the community, is on par with this vision. The program includes overhead music in common areas, a program of live artist performances in the terminal, artist- recorded overhead announcements, curated videos on terminal and baggage claim monitors, and a multi-channel web radio player available through the free airport Wi-Fi network.
