Business Comings: Trail Youth opens innovative North Bend coffee house; two new stores coming to downtown Snoqualmie

There are a few new business coming to the Snoqualmie Valley this summer so we thought we’d share a bit of info and some opening dates.


This new store is more than a traditional gift shop. After 28 years, this 3rd generation family owned and operated business will have something for everyone…. locals, tourists and their loyal Eastside customers.

Located on the corner of Railroad Ave and King Street, Carousel plans to offer fun, trendy merchandise – as well as seasonal items, souvenirs, jewelry, local art and more.

Carousel is relocating from the Sammamish Plateau and the owners say they are very excited to become part of the Snoqualmie Valley community with their new location in historic Snoqualmie.

They plan to be open by Friday, June 29th, just in time for the Finally Friday Art & Wine Walk.

JL The Boutique

Snoqualmie resident Jodi Jeffries has spent the last three years building her mobile boutique pop-up business and is finally ready to open her first brick and mortar store. She said it has been her dream and vision to open a Snoqualmie Valley storefront since settling in Snoqualmie in 2012.

The boutique will open its store on Falls Ave (formally Snoqualmie Valley Pet Parlor which moved next to the laundromat ) in late June or early July.  They’ve been busy revamping the store’s interior, which required taking the space down to the studs.

Jodi said JL The Boutique will be a local destination for Women’s and Men’s apparel, home decor and gifts. You can visit their website until the storefront opens – or find one of their weekly pop-up events at Sigillo Cellars on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 5PM – 9PM or at the Heirloom Green Market on Fridays from 2PM – 7PM.

Trail Youth Coffee House – NOW OPEN

This unique nonprofit opened its doors last week with the support of grants from King County. They rehabbed the spot next to Scott’s Dairy Freeze on North Bend Way, turning it into a coffee house that helps fund programming for teens offered during the afternoon.

The Trail Youth is a non-profit organization working to build bridges between homeless youth and available resources.They aim to help kids, ages 13-19, by “promoting stable, nurturing relationships with mentors and promoting a safe, healing environment for students” through their youth coffee shop.

The coffee house is open to the public Monday – Friday from 7AM to 2PM. From 2:30PM – 5PM they are open to teens only – where everything is just for them. The kids don’t pay fo specialty drinks and can receive mentorship, barista training, leadership development and community connections.

Trail Youth will also be featured on New Day Northwest on Tuesday, June 26th.
