Since the Kalispel Tribe of Indians opened their Northern Quest Casino on Hayford Rd. in the Spokane suburb of Airway Heights they have never stopped looking for ways to improve the Casino and the surrounding property for the 1000's of people who visit it every year. And now is no different as the tribe is making more changes at Northern Quest, The first change will open in June as some of the space currently occupied by a gift shop called The Logo Shop will become a new yogurt shop,work on the new shop will begin soon, I'll post the name and opening once I have it. The Logo Shop space is near the Sprague Ave. enterance to the resort and directly across the hall from a bar called Liquid .
Also happening soon,the casino is planning a remodel of it's River's Edge Buffet . The buffet is located near the Pond Orelle Pavilion Event Center and next to the Woodland Resturant . During the remodel the buffet will for a time move into the Pavillion ,construction on the buffet which will remain in the same space it's in today will begin soon also.
And one of the more visible improvements to the Northern Quest Casino will be outside where the Kalispel Tribe will realign Sprague Ave. as it crosses the tribe's property this summer. The new Sprague Ave. will be bided out in June and will be rebuilt to allow for future development . The new Sprague Ave will be a 4 lane blvd. with a median . The new alignment will move Sprague south to where the Tribe's Chevron gas station sits on Hayford Rd. and will also include a new entry drive to the Casino. Also planned is a new drive for future Industrial development off of Sprague inbetween Northern Quest and the Airway Heights Correctional Facility. It is unclear at this time what plans the tribe has for this land which is nicknamed Legacy Landing but has indicated it may one day become a mixed use commercial development which may also include a selection of big box retailers.
On top of all the new things on the horizon at Northern Quest Casino they are also about to begin another year of the highly successful Northern Quest Casino Pepsi Summer Concert Series which takes place entirely outside by the Casino's Hotel Tower.I know i've shared the concert schedule before but I figured I'd re-post it since I know at least 1 concert has been added since my last post.
