Baxter’s Auto Parts Buys Large Distribution Building

Baxter’s Auto Parts is a northwest icon in the Auto Parts Retail Business. Around and growing since 1936, Baxter now has over 36 retail stores in the Pacific Northwest, but their main distribution warehouse in North Portland was becoming inadequate, plus they wanted to own their next, larger facility.

After surveying over a dozen buildings throughout the Portland metro, a 150,000 sf under-utilized warehouse along Hwy 26 in west Portland was determined to be the best fit for the long term.

Baxter’s was able to negotiate a short-term, seller-carried contract sale to preserve Baxter’s borrowing capacity while allowing them to double their distribution space and increase their business.
