Svendsen’s Grand Opening Tomorrow

Tomorrow, Svendsen’s Marine & Industrial Supply will have its Grand Opening at their new facility in Alameda. At 9 a.m., Alameda Mayor Trish Spencer will cut the ribbon and officially launch the new location at 2900 Main Street — and we’ll be there, too.

After a long, proud history at Alameda Marina, Svendsen’s moved their boatyard operations to Bay Marine in Richmond at the beginning of the year. But starting tomorrow, their marine supply and chandlery operations will now be in a much larger warehouse in Alameda with "vastly increased product selection," according to Business Wire. "The new facility has supplies for boats from the smallest dinghies all the way up to the ferries and tugs plying the Bay."

For those of you who frequented the old Svendsen’s chandlery, you can expect many of the same faces and personalities at the new store. It’s a new beginning for an old staple of the Bay. 

Latitude will have a table set up at the event complete with stacks of magazines and hats for sale. It’s the perfect chance to pick up your August issue and update your swag. We look forward to seeing you there.
