The Disney Store at Alderwood Mall in Lynnwood, a suburb to the north of Seattle, closed.
Dark and shuttered
The sign didn’t say they had moved. Instead, it encouraged customers to shop at their website.
I’m not sure exactly when they closed. Obviously, they would have stayed open during the Christmas season, and then a little afterwards to process any returns or exchanges. I don’t deny the internet is more efficient, but children enjoyed walking in and seeing their favorite Disney figures—including a figure of Alice from Alice in Wonderland, I think about three feet tall, in the front window. It’s kind of too bad.
