A new workwear clothing store that bills itself as “home of the trades” held its grand opening on Sunrise Boulevard last weekend.

Purpose-Built Trade Co. held the grand opening event on Saturday, Oct. 21, according to an announcement from the company’s social media sites. The event included a car and truck show at the new location at 6245 Sunrise Blvd., which was formerly the home to Pier 1 Imports.

The business offers workwear brands such as Carhartt, Dickies, and Wrangler at their retail locations. Four other locations in Pleasant Hill, Livermore, Oakley, and Modesto are listed on its website.

There is a selection of clothing for men, women, and children as well as accessories such as hats, sunglasses, and footwear at the location. All of the items are aimed to be used by people working in the trade industries.

Purpose-Built opened its first store in Concord in 2010, according to the company’s website. The company is also known to hold regular events to raise funds for a variety of causes.
