Major American brand appears to close iconic store – but shoppers are confused by cryptic message

ONE Nike store has been closed for most of the past few months, leaving shoppers confused about whether or not the store will permanently shut its doors.

The sporting apparel store has no sign posted on the front of its Portland, Oregon, location at 2650 N.E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

Nike’s website says the location is “closed for the next 7 days."

Earlier this month, another downtown location in Seattle, Washington closed after serving the community for more than two decades.

The sports retail giant didn't offer reasoning as to why the Portland location closed at the time.

However, some feel that it's due to a change in Nike's retail strategy as they try to emphasize "direct-to-consumer sales" online and in-person, per the Seattle Times.

A new store will allegedly open in Bellevue sometime soon.

Some members of the Portland community say that the store closure could be a result of theft in the city.

Police data showed that there were about 276 cases of shoplifting at the location on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, according to local news outlet KGW-TV.

Nike officials also allegedly informed a community leader that theft at the store is considerably high, affecting the location's revenue.

The store isn't empty, either, as there were reports of workers restocking shelves on January 18.

This particular Nike Community Store has been around since 1984 and has remained central to the Black community.

Civil rights advocate Ron Herndon and the Black United Front had discussions with Nike back in the 1980s to bring the store to the area.

“This was a time when there was no investment from the city and the area was decaying. And we felt like there were a number of businesses that could help support the Black community,” Herndon told the Seattle Times.

“Nike did what no other entity, whether city agency or organization, was prepared to do.”

He continued that Nike promised to hire members of the community for employees at the location and to take profits and invest them back into the area.

For years, the sports apparel brand did just that, according to Herndon.

“That store has always been a tremendous source of pride within the Black community,” he noted.

Although, Herndon claimed that he spoke to a few Nike officials and said, "it’s painful for them to think of never opening it again.”

According to John Washington, the executive director of the Soul District Business Association, the Nike store did spark economic growth in the area despite theft issues.

To him, if the store does close, it would feel like a "betrayal."

"If Nike were to really close the store without prior notice, it would definitely be a betrayal to the community,” he explained to the Seattle Times.

“We hope that they continue to be supportive of the community. We hope they don’t abandon us if they’re in transition. We’re remaining optimistic given the history we have with them.”

The U.S. Sun has contacted Nike for official comment on the current closure of the Portland location.

This news comes as theft at retailers around the United States has increased, and many others are closing their doors for other reasons during the so-called "retail apocalypse."

Walmart CEO Doug McMillion recently told CNBC Squawk Box that the company has "historically high" theft levels.

This could mean increases in prices on items and store closures.

Macy's is notably in the process of closing 150 stores.

Bed Bath & Beyond is currently in the midst of a debt crisis and closing over 120 locations.

The U.S. Sun has compiled an entire list of several retailers that have locations closing in 2023.
