More proof that Airway Heights and the West Plains in general is a hot place to locate a business, a purposed shopping center on the eastern edge of the City of Airway Heights is filling up before it's even built.
The West Plains Plaza is that shopping center and it was first purposed a couple of months ago for the southwestern side of the intersection at US 2 & Hayford Rd. The site is a high traffic area and nearby some major employers / attractants like Northern Quest Casino and the Spokane International Airport.
When West Plains Plaza finally does open, in the fall or winter of 2016 , several businesses will call it home. Including two we just learned about. They are...
Grocery Outlet - Taking the space directly in the middle of the inline retail space. No info about opening date or how many employed, that will be posted separately as we find out more.
Dollar Tree- Taking a slightly smaller space then Grocery Outlet, next door and directly to the west of the that store. Also, there is no other news to report about this store, but we will create a separate post about it later as well.
A marketing advertisement for the plaza also shows an image of the Sprint logo but no mention of them being a tenant there. But, Dollar Tree and Grocery Outlet are not the only already planned tenants as a Jimmy John's Subs and a Pawn 1 location are also included as coming to the plaza. Pawn 1 will be on a pad site and the Jimmy John's will be within the inline spaces.
The area around the new West Plains Plaza is also getting a lot of new businesses as well. Here's what's happening in the neighborhood around US 2 & Hayford Rd.-
- A new smaller shopping center in the parking lot of Wal Mart, tenants going in there so far are a AT&T cell phone store and a Papa Murphy's Pizza.
- A new second Chevron gas station from Northern Quest Resort & Casino, along US 2
- Hearing a Oil Can Henry's will go in out front of Wal Mart
- Walgreen's already owns a lot across Hayford from the West Plains Plaza, it is to be used for a new store that has been on hold. However it is speculated that the new project will re-start the Walgreen's project.
