Liberty Lake Safeway to become Haggen Food & Pharmacy

This year Safeway and Albertson's grocery store chains entered into a agreement to merge the two companies together. And as part of that merger, some of those companies stores must be sold to other companies, usually in places where the two chains compete directly with one another.

A buyer has stepped up, and pending approval by regulators those locations will change hands to Haggen Food & Pharmacy. Haggen , who operates their stores as Haggen Northwest Fresh is a Bellingham,Wa based chain of grocery stores with currently under 20 locations. With the new locations Haggen will grow by huge amounts practically overnight. In fact, if all the Safeway / Albertson's stores that are to be shed, do go to Haggen the chain will operate over 160 stores. Most of those also include in store pharmacy's.

While most Safeway's and Albertson's will not change brands, some will, and one locally will make the change to Haggen Northwest Fresh. That location is the Liberty Lake Safeway.




The Liberty Lake Safeway will become a Haggen grocery store after the deal closes sometime in early 2015. The store is located at 1233 N. Liberty Lake Rd. Additionally Haggen will also aquire two other stores in Eastern Washington in Wenatchee and Walla Walla. No North Idaho locations are to be effected.

Employees of the Liberty Lake Safeway will be allowed to transfer their jobs into the new Liberty Lake Haggen store.

Haggen Northwest Fresh stores are full service grocery stores with all departments including bulk foods, floral and a beer and wine department which will feature locally produced microbrews.

Classic country has arrived to FM radio in Spokane. 104.5 FM has re-launched with a new format and new branding. 104.5 is now Hank FM, and is operated by Alexandria Communications using a branding that is already successful in other parts of the country, including in Walla Walla.

Prior to this new rebranding as 104.5 Hank FM the station was silent, but as many recall the station was also 104.5 Jamz. That station was operated by local business person Jamie Pendleton who caused a stir last year for the controversial drink names, etc... of his other local business the Spokane Downtown Daiquiri Factory.

For more on this new Spokane radio station take a look at this press release-

Frontier Airlines to pull out of Spokane International Airport

Early this week the announcement was made that Frontier Airlines will soon end all flight service to Spokane International Airport.

Frontier, is a lower fare airline based out of Denver,Co. that has struggled financially in the last couple of years. Spokane is not the only city Frontier Airlines has recently left with service being pulled from Fresno and Bakersfield,Ca.  Locally service will end on Jan. 6th 2015.

Frontier Airlines was not a major player for Spokane International with only one morning departure and one evening arrival both coming and going to Denver. Direct flight service to Denver from Spokane will still continue with a couple of other airlines providing daily service.

The departure of Frontier Airlines from Spokane will leave the airport with service six passenger airlines.  Frontier had only a limited amount of locally based staff meaning layoffs will happen but will be minimal.

New(ish) restaurant review- Barlow's at Liberty Lake

Thanks to a reminder from Urbanspoon that I haven't logged in, in awhile. I was reminded that I also haven't done a review of any new Spokane area restaurants for quite sometime. So here it goes... Today's review is of what I would call a newish restaurant because Barlow's has actually been in business locally for a little more then five years.

But, a few months ago Barlow's moved out their original small restaurant to a new, much bigger location that is free standing and new construction built just for use by Barlow's. With the move to the new building Barlow's also changed their name to Barlow's at Liberty Lake. The "at Liberty Lake " portion was added to allow the business to expand and open elsewhere in the future. However, there are no immediate plans to create any additional restaurants. Although Barlow's is a great ,locally owned and operated business that I hope does manage to work it's way into more location in our area soon.

Barlow's at Liberty Lake is a calm, clean restaurant with very friendly staff that is well worth a visit. The menu is made up of a little of everything you'd expect from an American cuisine restaurant like the photo below. The menu is made up burgers, sandwiches and appetizers along the left page with fair pricing and a right page of entree's which admittedly are a bit higher priced but also fairly priced and on par with the big chain restaurants that dot the landscape.

During my visit the Barlow's at Liberty Lake, I chose from the sandwich side only. As a huge fan of Philly cheesesteaks I ordered one. And it showed up looking just as delicious as I had hoped...



 The Philly showed up after a basket of bread, a delicious soft bread that was sliced and interestingly enough what appeared to be the same bread as was used for the sandwich . As you can see above the sandwich was a bit heavier on the meat then the peppers and cheese. But rest assured these are not absent and on a personal level it was welcomed.

Temperature was good and delivery time to our table was also as expected. After the sandwich and accompanying fries I was too full to divulge in dessert but there are dessert menu options. In addition to dessert Barlow's at Liberty Lake also has full bar menu. I think the prices are slightly higher then some local establishments but are still fair. Here is a look at Barlow's signature drink menu. The other side of this menu card highlight more drinks, created specifically for the winter season....

 
 
 
Drinks are also available in the on site " Alicia's Market Side Lounge " which is immediately to the left upon entering the restaurant. The restaurant itself is pleasant but not overly decorated. There is some basic art of vehicles , etc... . On one wall however is a large mural that features the history of Liberty Lake, a city with a very interesting history.
 
I do plan to go back to Barlow's and is worth the drive out the Liberty Lake for a nice night out or maybe even quick breakfast / lunch.
 
 
Barlow's at Liberty Lake is located in, of course Liberty Lake. Here is their info and a link to the their Facebook page-
 
 
Barlow's at Liberty Lake
1428 N. Liberty Lake Rd.

A couple of new chain restaurant locations coming

Looks like a couple of large national restaurant chains are going to be investing in Spokane by opening new locations in the coming months.

Because they are only in the permitting phases ( actually, as of typing this, neither has a issued permit ) we don't know when they will open, or how many they will employ. But the city's records show these 2 new restaurants coming....

Denny's on the Division St. hill.

This one is interesting because of it being only a few blocks north of Gonzaga and the University District. It also is in a very heavy traffic area, with the address to be 3525 N. Division St , at the corner of N. Division and Gordon.

Current plans for the new Denny's to be built on a vacant site directly at the corner with a portion of the building to the south to be demolished to make way for parking spaces to service the Denny's.

The new building is purposed to be about 4,500 square feet, with construction beginning in June. Interestingly enough the record also notes construction is planned to take about 90 days. Really is amazing how fast building can be built.

Jack in the Box on Northwest Blvd.

Planned to be built at 1511 W. Northwest Blvd is a new Jack in the Box fast food restaurant.

While the address of this new Jack in the Box is on Northwest Blvd. plans show it to actually be built on the corner of Northwest and Maple. Current plans show a 3,000 square foot restaurant building with drive through and parking area.

If it goes as planned construction on this new restaurant will also start in June, with a completion date about 90 days out from then.

The site is currently vacant.

Timber Gastropub to replace the Hot Rod Cafe


Construction work is already underway on the former Hot Rod Café Building on Schneidmiller Dr. in Post Falls. The building is been repainted with a gray, almost black paint and the iconic hot rod that once spun over top of the entry way has been removed.

We actually mentioned this plan some time back, but are just now getting the full details. Turns out the former Hot Rod Café is being converted into a gastropub style bar and restaurant. The new business name will be Timber Gastropub and it is currently scheduled to open in March.

Timber Gastropub is being designed by HDG Hissong + Hurtado Design Group of Spokane and is a business venture of Bill Miller and Randy Ingraham who are also the owners of Longhorn BBQ in Spokane. In fact, a new Longhorn location was once rumored to be what was going into the old Hot Rod building.

Timber, will have a new interior look in addition to a full bar. A food menu will also be included that consists of burgers, pizzas, wood oven apps and much more for lunch and dinner. We expect to see a full menu as the opening date nears.

The new restaurant will employ about 40. Renderings of what Timber will look like once completed can be found on HDG's Facebook page ( postings are back in Oct. ) -

Building purposed for " the hole" at 3rd & Division

It looks like travelers coming into Spokane via the I-90/ Division St. may soon have something to greet them other then the big hole on the northwest side of the 3rd and Division St intersection.

The City of Spokane's building permit portal reveals that, this week a "pre-development conference" was held for a new building at that exact site. The plan is being brought forward by John & Rita Santillanes, who list an address on Geiger Blvd. which is also the address of the Best Western Peppertree Inn on the West Plains. This is interesting because the owner of that hotel was the same who started the construction project a few years ago that resulted in the pit there today.

That project was to be a new hotel, but the project abandoned for good after the massive Grand Hotel Spokane construction project began to the north. Making the need for new hotel rooms Downtown almost nill ( for now... )

The paperwork attached to the conference indicates a new 2 story building would rise from the site. There is no rendering attached, but a site plan shows the building will be commercial with retail, restaurant and office (office space on the second floor ) uses.

The information included shows a purposed construction start date of May 2015, along with a logo from Baker Construction. It may cost about $2 million with about 10,000 square feet of retail on the main floor and 6,000 square feet of office space above. Surrounding the new building will be a surface parking lot.

We expect to be hearing more on this soon. And will surely post renderings, names and tenants as we get them.

Aerospace manufacturing facility planned for Post Falls

The City of Post Falls has taken a few hard hits job wise recently, with the pending closure of Kimball Office and Unitech backing out of their plan to move there large manufacturing operations to a site near Cabela's.

But, all is not lost on " Idaho's River City" with the plans, announced a couple of months ago to construct a new aerospace manufacturing plant for a company currently in Spokane Valley. Ironically this new factory will be almost next door to the large Kimball Office plant which will soon be empty.

This new aerospace manufacturing facility will be operated by ATC Manufacturing,Inc. and will be a relocation by the company from their current, smaller plant to this new site. The company chose to move to Idaho because of a new tool from the local government, called IDC or Industrial Development Corporation which allows for tax free financing to attract businesses to cross the border into Idaho.

ATC, which stands for Advanced Thermoplastic Composites and creates composites and carbon fiber parts for their clients in the aerospace industry. ATC will also relocate their corporate offices to this site in Post Falls. Currently ATC operates at 10310 E. Buckeye Lane, Spokane Valley.

ATC Manufacturing,Inc. employs about 70 today and plans to hire about 45 more during the next year.

Construction is already beginning at the company's Post Falls site which will be off of Lean Ave. in the Treaty Rock Corporate Park. The company will be the first tenant of the Treaty Rock park which is imminently west of Kimball Office and visible from Seltice Way.  ATC Manufacturing's new building will be about 65,000 square feet and is currently scheduled to open during the fall of 2015.

Liquor License Watch- Dec 10th 2014

Here is a look at the most recently filed liquor license applications around Spokane County. Because they are only license applications that means these may not be new businesses. Although it can be a pretty reliable source.

All are acquired from the Washington State Liquor Control Board-


One Tree Hard Cider
An already open hard cider business may be moving(?) . This based on their application to relocate their liquor license from 9608 E. Montgomery Ave. #3 to 9514 E. Montgomery Ave. #25 , Spokane Valley.

New Boundary Brewing Co.
This new microbrewery has a license application in Cheney at 505 1st Ave.

Le Brothers
A new liquor license application has been filed for a business called Le Brothers in Spokane Valley. However, the application is for 12012 E. Sprague Ave Suite 1 which is already a Vietnamese restaurant called Pho Thinh.

Perhaps some changes are coming?

Cat-House Partners
Listed as a tavern for beer and wine Cat House Partners' application is for 1517 W. Jackson Ave. , Spokane.

Guessing by the name, this may be a parent company for a future bar and/or restaurant. Also, the address is in a residential neighborhood so this will probably be someplace else?

FBL Arts & Wine Studio
FBL is filing for 3111 N. Monroe St in Spokane. This business will be going in with a business called The Bag Lady, which is a thrift store near N. Monroe and Euclid.

The FBL stands for Fancy Bad Lady, and other then that there isn't much info yet other then this will probably be a similar business concept to Pinot's Palette in Downtown Spokane.

Savage Boar Spirits
A new craft distillery is in the works and has filed their liquor license recently for their new space in Airway Heights. Savage Boar Spirits plans to open at 11902 W. 21st Ave.

This one is a defiantly confirmed new business as they already have a Facebook page. Which, can be found here-

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Savage-Boar-Spirits-Craft-Distillery/544998715530879

El Ixtapa Restaurant
This new license application is in Medical Lake in a space that is already occupied by a another Mexican restaurant. This license is located at 116 S. Lefevre St.

Sip 'n Paint Studio
This new liquor license application is for another new wine and painting studio opening soon in North Spokane. The business will be located at 7704 N. Division.

This one is also confirmed as a new business, with a page on Facebook. Here is their page-

https://www.facebook.com/SipnPaintStudio

Steam House
This new license appears to be for a new restaurant coming to Spokane. However the application is within a residential neighborhood.

Steam House's license location is 1227 E. 39th Ave.

Stash Restaurant
This is a new application for what appears to be a restaurant. However, the license is filed for a nightclub. This one, similar to listing above, falls in a residential neighborhood.

Stash Restaurant is filed for 2728 E. 31st Ave in Spokane.

New shopping center planned near Post Falls Wal Mart

New development and shopping choices are coming soon to Post Falls. This, with recent news of a new strip mall style shopping center to be built in coming months directly across Mullan Ave. from the Post Falls Wal Mart supercenter store.

The center, which is currently being called Mullan & Cecil Retail Complex will actually be two buildings one directly on Mullan Ave. and another directly behind it facing Mullan but closer to Cecil Rd. . The development is being designed by Eric Headlund Design,LLC of Coeur d' Alene.

No construction has started at the site as of today but construction should start soon, as the project is scheduled to be complete and open for business by June 2015.

The Mullan & Cecil Retail Complex will feature 17,000 square feet of new retail space across both buildings. Dependent upon how much space the stores at the center need, the development may be home to as many as 14 different new businesses and the one space will include a drive up window. Currently there are no confirmed tenants for the center however.

The center will connect through the parking lot to the neighboring Potlatch Credit Union. Also, the home and garage directly at the corner of Mullan and Cecil will be removed at some point with that site being sold as a commercial pad site connected to the new development.

Leasing of the Mullan & Cecil Retail Complex is being done by Coldwell Banker Schneidmiller Realty's commercial team.

For more information, contact Coldwell Banker at 208-765-4300 or online at-

#ABRoadEatsSpokane , Alton Brown wants to know where to eat in Spokane

Other then with your own money, I can't think of a better way to support Spokane's local restaurant's then to send a famous celebrity to one. And everyone's chance for just that has arrived.

On March 1st , 2015 Celebrity Host / Chef Alton Brown will be in Spokane for his tour- Alton Brown, The Editable Inevitable Tour, and he is asking us, the people of Spokane to suggest where he should eat while he is in the Lilac City.

To suggest local restaurants to Alton comment to him on Twitter via hashtag  #ABRoadEatsSpokane    ( @altonbrown  https://twitter.com/altonbrown )

Or via Facebook using the same hashtag, or on his page -
https://www.facebook.com/altonbrown

Already a few suggestions have been made ( i.e. The Onion, Veraci Pizza, Sante , etc... ) but compared to some the other cities on the tour, Spokane is somewhat behind on tweets.

Alton Brown's Tour show will play the INB Perfoming Arts Center in Spokane on Mar 1st. 2015 . Show tickets are on sale now via the link below. Currently tickets start at $31.50 and go up to $97.50 . The $97.50 ticket level is for orchestra pit seats with a meet and greet with Alton Brown before the night's show.

Here is the info on the show directly from www.altonbrowntour.com -



"ALTON BROWN LIVE! The Edible Inevitable Tour
With his upcoming tour, Alton Brown Live! The Edible Inevitable Tour, Alton Brown brings his brand of quirky humor and culinary-science antics to the stage.  The two hour show is a unique blend of stand up comedy, food experimentation, talk show antics, multimedia lecture, and, for the first time...live music. 

Audience interaction is strictly enforced throughout the evening though; if you’re called upon as a culinary assistant, you’ll definitely want to take the lab coat Brown offers as things tend to get messy.  Brown has worked his weird magic on live audiences across the nation for over a decade but this is the first time he’s actually hit the road with a live tour. 
The entire family will have a blast, especially as you sing along with Brown’s soon to be hits “Airport Shrimp Blues” and “TV Cookin Ain’t Like No Other Cookin”. "

South Hill's Regal Plaza almost full with recent batch of new businesses announced

A couple of times on this blog I've given credit for the hard work of Kimele & Hagood Real Estate for successfully filling a couple of spaces in Coeur d' Alene. But I'm non-bias and must also give the old " way to go " to Spokane's NAI Black.

NAI Black has helped take the Regal Plaza Shopping Center at the corner of S. Regal and Palouse Hwy from a controversial empty commercial lot to what is already becoming one of Spokane's prime spots for retail and restaurants.

Today, the center is already home to a few businesses including the Target and Petsmart anchors. But in the coming months many more are scheduled to open. And now we've heard of a couple more, meaning that now Regal Plaza has only one more un-leased space yet to go.

The latest new businesses announced to be opening there include- Numerica Credit Union and Ezell's Chicken .

Numerica of course is far from new to Spokane but this will however be the first Spokane location of Ezell's Chicken. That chain which goes by the name Ezell's Famous Chicken is a small but growing group of fried chicken restaurants from Western Washington.


So, now after posting about new business at Regal Plaza on and off for the last few months. Here is what appears to be the final business roster for the development. Minus, the one empty space on "Pad A " ( 2 doors north of the new Target )-

(Note: not all are open, in fact some may not open till the spring / summer of 2015 )

Target

Petsmart

T-Mobile

Mod Pizza

Ezell's Famous Chicken

Sally Beauty

Café Rio

Supercuts

Jersey Mike's Subs

Spa Nails

Slick Rock Tanning and Spa

Numerica Credit Union 

Anthony's Beach Café

Bubbadogz Hot Dog Company, Liberty Lake

Bubbadogz is probably already a name that is recognized by many in the region. That's because they have operated a hot dog cart / trailer type business at many local events.

Oh My Burgers Shakes and Fries, Cheney

Construction is now underway for an exciting new burger restaurant in Cheney.

The Clubhouse at Painted Hills

New owners are planning to re-open the former clubhouse of the Painted Hills Golf Course in Spokane Valley into a new sports bar.

The golf course itself was closed and sold at auction after the previous owners had to file bankruptcy. Both the clubhouse and the golf course have now been sold with the course itself planned to be developed into a new residential subdivision.

The clubhouse portion was acquired by these new owners, who are also the same people behind the Sullivan Scoreboard Sports Bar near Sprague and Sullivan in Spokane Valley.

The business will have a bar and a food menu. There is still a lot of work to be done before the new business will open, but the opening right now is planned for January.
