More new businesses opening at Coeur d' Alene Resort Plaza Shops

I think it's time to chock up one more success story for the brokers and agents of Kimele & Hagood Company as they've re-filled the empty storefronts of the Coeur d' Alene Resort Plaza Shops.

The Coeur d' Alene Resort Plaza Shops is a small but well positioned enclosed shopping center in the heart of Downtown Coeur d' Alene. And it doesn't get much more "prime" in terms of prime real estate with the mall being attached by skywalk and sidewalk to the Coeur d' Alene Resort itself.

So because of that it's seemed a bit odd seeing the mall sitting half empty for most of the summer tourist season. But all that is now almost over with one recent opening and three more businesses opening soon there.

Here are the details on what businesses are coming soon to the Coeur d' Alene Resort Plaza Shops-

One Good Thread

One Good Thread is retail store version of the web site. The web site is based in Downtown Spokane and was originally purposed for a location on Third Ave. in Spokane, where the companies offices and warehouse are also located.

The One Good Thread retail store is located in the former paper and gift shop space near the Sherman Ave. entrance.

The new store sells much of what can be found on the web site. Including mid to high end children's clothing with many brands that can be hard to find elsewhere.

One Good Thread is now open.


We don't have as much information on Chamira other then it will be a women's clothing boutique. The business will be further into the shopping center in the former Painted Pony space.

Climb Works

Climb Works is not a new business but is new to Coeur d' Alene. Climb Works is small chain of zip line tour businesses with a store front to sell their zip line tours and some other merchandise.

The exciting aspect of Climb Works is the new location will be their because the company is setting up a zip line route somewhere in the local area soon. We hope to get more on this.

Climb Works will open their store towards the interior of the Coeur d' Alene Resort Plaza Shops taking the former Smitten clothing boutique space.

Memory Lane Gems

Speaking of local business success stories, Memory Lane Gems, is a new second location of Memory Lane in Silver Lake Mall. The business was originally a part of Widgett's Antiques and formed into their own antique shop in the North Coeur d' Alene mall.

Memory Lane Gems will be much like the Memory Lane Antiques store in the mall. Selling a bit of everything vintage.

Memory Lane Gems will take over the former Gentlemen's Corner shop in the center block of the Coeur d' Alene Resort Plaza Shops.

What is going on with Splash?

Splash was bar / dance club that was owned by the Resort and located in the front section of the Resort Plaza Shops right along Sherman Ave. . However it closed a couple of months ago following issues with selling drinks to minors.

Today that high profile space is believed to still be empty. We have no confirmation but believe the Coeur d' Alene Resort is planning a new business in the space.

It's that new business that is the question. I have heard of both a taphouse style bar and steakhouse planned for the site. We do think something is coming soon and will update everyone as soon as I know.

If you can confirm plans for the former Splash club please contact me, Matt at
