Washington State University opening a retail store in Downtown Spokane

Maybe it's because Cougs merchandise is readily available from many stores in the Spokane area but I must admit, I've always wondered why WSU had a retail store of all Cougs stuff in Downtown Seattle, but not in Spokane. But that will soon change as the university is now in process of moving into a new store, right in the heart of Downtown Spokane.

The new Downtown Spokane Washington State Connections store will be located kitty corner from the STA Plaza at the corner of Wall and Riverside ( 618 W. Riverside ). There is no set opening date just yet but we're told the store should open next month.

This new store won't be exactly like the other 2 store WSU operates ( in Seattle's Rainier Square, and in Everett ) . That's because the store will be a retail shop for Coug's appeal, accessories , Cougar Gold Chesses, etc... but will also act as a ticket outlet for events on the Pullman campus, including of course, WSU athletics.

Once open the Spokane store will be open Monday - Saturday 10am - 6pm
