Mount Rainier Clock Repair in Thurston County Is Off to Busy First Month

From the The Chronicle:

After opening its doors in January, Mount Rainier Clock Repair has been off to a busy first month of business in Yelm.

The new shop works on all sorts of clocks, which range from cuckoo to grandfather clocks, antiques to modern pieces, wall clocks and more.

Lance Howard, the owner of Mount Rainier Clock Repair, has been repairing clocks since 1977. Howard opened a nautical retail store in 1974, and three years later, he added a repair shop to his business. Howard began repairing and providing maintenance to clocks and nautical-related items.

With nearly 50 years of repair experience under his belt, Howard wanted to open a clock repair shop in Yelm after he relocated to the area. After nearly a year of searching, he eventually found his current Creek Street location.

“It’s a business that doesn’t exist. The industry has changed in a way where seniors are closing their shops to retire,” Howard said. “It’s leaving vast holes in the industry across the country and locally in the way of Lacey, Fife and Puyallup.”

Howard said he has no plans of quitting or retiring anytime soon as the industry continues to phase out.

Since opening its doors in January, Howard said people have brought in around 30 clocks in need of service to his business.


The new clock repair business is located at 10501 Creek St. SE in Yelm.
