Sportsman’s Warehouse, a national outdoor-oriented retail store, is scheduled to open a new facility in Hillsboro in spring 2014. It will be located at 18645 N.W. Tanasbourne Dr.

“We are excited to open a store in Hillsboro. The area has a strong outdoor heritage, and we plan to become an active, contributing partner of this great community,” said Sportsman’s Warehouse CEO John Schaefer.

The 44,000-square-foot building will be the company’s fifth location in Oregon. Like the others, it will feature a large selection of hunting, fishing and camping apparel, footwear and gear. It will also host instruction, seminars and special events related to outdoor activities.

“Not only does this opening represent our continued commitment to expand our loyal customer base, but it is also a testament to our solid business model and the hard work of our dedicated employees.”

Eatery coming to Tanasbourne

The Thirsty Lion Pub & Grill will open at the Streets of Tanasbourne in December 2013. It will take over the space previously occupied by Macaroni Grill on Northwest Stucki Avenue. It will offer a wide range of multicultural meals, draft beers, wines and specialty drinks.

The new Hillsboro location will be the third Thirsty Lion in the metropolitan area. The business is owned by Portland-based Concept Entertainment, which currently owns six food and beverage brands at nine locations.

The company was founded in 1990 and began expanding seriously in recent years after the addition of senior managers from Pacific Coast Restaurants and McCormick & Schmick’s. Founder and CEO John Plew plans to have 24 Thirsty Lion locations within 10 years.

Hillsboro sewing business open one year

Kathie Langill’s business, Itchin’ To Be Stitchin’, has been in its downtown Hillsboro location for one year.

The company, which offers sewing classes for ages 8 and up, quilting classes and performs custom sewing, embroidery and alterations work, can be found at 315 E. Main St., Suite 309.

Langill, who operated the business out of her Aloha home for seven years, received her first embroidery machine as a birthday gift.

Langill said she would eventually like to carry a line of fabric and notions to go along with the company’s sewing and quilting instruction.
