Anko announced Tuesday that it would be permanently closing its stores effective immediately, including its online store.

The Australia-based store — which offered “simple, modern styles at an affordable price” — opened at the former Babies ‘R’ Us site on Alderwood Mall Parkway in Lynnwood last April.

Online orders placed before 11:59 p.m. Sunday, June 7 will be available at a customer’s chosen pick-up location. Due to recent demand, orders may take three to five days to arrive, the store said.

  1. I was curious about Anko and went in shortly after they opened in Lynnwood. It was very underwhelming. Did not seem to have much to sell. Never went back.

  2. I actually tried to online shop at Anko, only to find that the business has permanently closed. Sure, some things were not the best quality (which goes for Ikea as well), but I enjoyed shopping for the basics. It was fun to browse through all the concept spaces. The customer service in both Lynnwood and Bellevue locations were wonderful.
