Living in the Spokane area you've no drought seen the national TV ad's for the Party City chain of party supply stores. But we've never had any locations so locals could only watch and not partake in the thousands of party and event merchandise for most any occasion.

But that's all about to change as Party City will soon be opening two stores locally, one in North Spokane and another in Spokane Valley.

I figured I take some time out and share some what the permits are showing for Spokane, because right now they're showing some exciting news. Much of that news will be reported on once I gather more info from other sources.

Now none of the these are sure things and I can only hint at things to avoid sharing full permit info since I'd assume this counts and as sharing for a commercial use (even though INBW isn't a for profit business). But here is some of the BIG news in the City of Spokane building permits-
