Get to Know Tillinghast Postal & Business Center

When the Tillinghast Postal & Business Center became available for sale by Lucy Kelly, Chris and Christi King jumped at the opportunity.  As a child, Christi came to La Conner with her family frequently. Her father and mother, Ron & Erlene Cooper, loved antiques and would frequent Nasty Jack’s. Ron also had a love for Birds of Prey, and no better place to see Eagles, Owls, Falcons, Hawks than the Skagit Valley.

Chris and Christi King moved from Lake Stevens to La Conner five years ago. Christi has long wanted to be a part of this local community and own a business in town one day. Both Chris and Christi have retired from Boeing, Chris five years ago, Christi in October of this year.

Getting to Know You

Chris and Christi believe the best part of owning a business in La Conner is getting to know all the residents, merchants, and farmers. When asked what they are most excited about, it’s getting to know all the customers/clients by name.
