We congratulate Sub Pop with the opening of their SeaTac retail store May 1st 2014.
Sub Pop stated, “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.
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.”
Sub Pop store is located in the Central Terminal near the entrance to concourse C. Open daily from 6 am – 10 pm.
Sub Pop Sub contacted Definitive for an audio solution at their new SeaTac airport store. They had shopped around for stereos in the past and always found the Definitive staff helpful and friendly. They also knew that we have provided much loved systems for other music labels and stores in town such as Light In The Attic Records and Silver Platters.
Store managers, Julie and Rachel, visited our Seattle showroom to review their needs and discuss options. Definitive’s, John Peters shared their excitement about the new store, passion for music and commitment to doing it right. He evaluated their floor plan and decided on 4 speaker locations to cover two parts of the store, the LP section at the back and the CD section in the middle of the store.
They did not want sound at the front of the store because they often have local musicians playing just outside the entrance, and we did not want sound directly near the sales counter. The system had to sound good, play from their iPad and a turntable, not take up much room, and look good. The Rotel RA12 amplifier in silver, two pairs of Bowers and Wilkins M1 in black, and a white Rega RP1 with a red felt mat exactly fit the bill.
Definitive threw in a pair of Definitive LP12 t-shirts for Julie and Rachel to sport around town and they left, excited to get things up and running!
