Inland Northwest Business Watch's research team can confirm yet another rumor! This rumor is of a new Joann Fabrics store opening soon in Coeur d' Alene. Details will take a bit longer to iron out but we do know Joann Fabrics will take a large space in the north end of Silver Lake Mall off of Government Way in North Coeur d' Alene.
The new store will take the spaces from the vacant former Maurice's clothing store space north to the Huckleberry Thicket gift shop/bakery space. We are still working on getting a opening date or a construction date for this new store. We're also still working on figuring out what will happen to the exsisting Coeur d' Alene Joann Fabric's store which is still open by Safeway on N 4th St in Midtown Coeur d' Alene.
Also, due in part to this new store location many of the mall's businesses are moving and even one is closing all together. The mall also confirms they will lease to a national retailer the former anchor space of Timberline Trading Co. which will move soon. Watch for post about all the business activity at Silver Lake Mall soon...
