Joann Fabrics is opening a new store at Silver Lake Mall in Coeur d' Alene. The store is actually a store relocation for the popular national fabric and craft chain that has had a location in Coeur d' Alene for sometime but will close that location after the new store opens. The former Joann location has been on 4th St. directly next door to Safeway in Midtown Coeur d' Alene.
The new store is part of a larger redo of the Rouse Properties owned mall. The new store will occupy the northwest corridor of the mall,the store will be in a remodeled space that was formerly several stores including RadioShack and Huckleberry Thicket.
