The newly reconstructed strip shopping center at 1330 N. Argonne Rd. is finally filling up and after grand opening festivities this weekend the center will get a bit sweeter. That's because 2 new businesses with a focus on all things sweet have joined the tenant list.
Grand Opening's will be held October 25th thru 27th for the Spokane Valley Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and Pete & Belle's Ice Cream Shop. Both of which are opening in Suite C of the plaza which is anchored by a new Ace Hardware location which has itself only been open for a few months. The plaza was originally the home of Spear's Furnishings before a portion of the building was destroyed in a snow storm a couple of years back.
The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory location at the Argonne site is a relocated store as RMCF has had a location in Spokane Valley for the last few years. That location was on N. Sulivan Rd. about midway between Broadway and E. Sprague Ave. RMCF also operates a small kiosk style store under the escalator at River Park Square in Downtown Spokane. The Downtown store remains open in the same space.
Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is a growing chain of shops that offer a wide array of chocolates and a variety of gourmet candy / Carmel apples which have proven to be a huge hit among many wherever RMCF has a location. For more info on Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory visit- www.rmcf5.com
The other new sweet business now open at the plaza is brand new to Spokane Valley. That business is Pete & Belle's Ice Cream Shop. Pete & Belle's Ice Cream Shop's name pretty much says it all as the new business is a full Ice Cream shop. And it's the variety of Ice Cream's that will no drought have more then a few returning customers. Pete & Belle's serves up 48 different flavors of " super premium " ice cream.
The new ice cream shop features ice cream in cones, sundaes , shakes and floats. And for those special occasion's the business offers ice cream cakes ( ice cream cakes can be made in any of the store's 48 flavors! ) and hand packed pints and quarts. Iced coffee and smoothies are also on the long menu list at Pete & Belle's .
