They closed the last store in 2017 and only remained at PDX until now. They say they will close after the 2020 holiday season, in part because renovations at the airport require them to vacate. They also cited difficulties of the pandemic and less traffic at the airport itself.

They are currently holding a Closing Sale with everything in the store 20-40% off.
