FUNKO Announces Rules For Grand Opening Celebration In Everett August 19th


Downtown Everett will become the center of the FUNKO universe on August 19th.

Rules. Yes to avoid chaos during the grand opening celebration of FUNKO’s new 90,000 square foot headquarters and retail store in the former Bon Marche building at 2802 Wetmore in downtown Everett, there are rules to be followed.

Here is a sampling…

Saturday, August 19, 2017
Ribbon cutting: 9:30AM

Ticket Distribution

  • Due to anticipated attendance, entry into the Funko HQ Grand Opening will be a ticketed event!
  • Tickets distribution will begin at 7:00am in the Wetmore Plaza area (the public space on Wetmore Ave north of Funko HQ, on the other side of California St) until all tickets are claimed. You will see a table and sign for ticket distribution in this area.
  • Tickets are for one person for one trip through the store. You must be present at ticket distribution to receive a ticket. You will not be able to save a spot in line for somebody else.
  • A new group will enter the store at the top of every hour between 10am and 7pm. The store will be cleared between each session. You will have one hour to browse, shop and experience Funko HQ!
  • You will not be able to line up for your session until the previous session has entered the store. For example, the 11am session will not be able to line up until the 10am session has entered the store.

General Rules

  • Do not camp out or form a line outside the Funko HQ Wetmore Ave entrance before you have a ticket. Forming a line outside the store will not guarantee you first admittance into the store, as you will need a ticket for entry. Please follow the ticket distribution procedures above to gain entry to the Funko HQ store. 
  • Please avoid bringing oversized bags/luggage to the event. There will be limited storage space outside the store while you shop (based on availability). You will only be able to bring in a small purse/handbag inside the store. No backpacks or large bags will be permitted. 
  • Strollers will not be permitted inside the store. Stroller parking will be available outside the store entrance. 
  • Funko will not be held responsible for lost or stolen goods. 
  • The store will also be open on Sunday, 11:00AM-7:00PM. 
  • Regular store hours beginning August 21, 2017:
    Monday: Closed
    Tuesday-Friday: 11:00AM-7:00PM
    Saturday: 10:00AM-7:00PM
