Construction continues to push quickly forward on the new building that will house Spokane's first Urban Outfitters store this fall. That building is attached to River Park Square and replaces an older building that housed a T-Mobile store and group of small local businesses. But, with all the hype surrounding Urban Outfitters it's easy to forget the clothing store chain won't be the only tenant of this modern looking building.
On the back side of the new Urban Outfitters building is another tenant space, which was previously announced to be used by Spokane Teachers Credit Union. The credit union, which is more usually known simply as STCU , is working on relocating a branch from the nearby Crescent Court Building into this new space later on this year.
But, now we are learning that STCU has worked out a unique arrangement for their new space. It has been announced that the popular local Rocket Bakery chain will share a portion of STCU's space, which faces Wall St. and currently closed former Downtown Macy's building.
The new Rocket Bakery will take a portion of the credit union's 2,900 square foot space. All of Rocket Bakery will be on the ground floor of the new building and will feature both indoor & outdoor seating areas and a full menu of coffee, espresso , baked good and lunch items just like the other Rocket Bakery locations that can be found all around the Spokane area.
STCU CEO Tom Johnson says the credit union and Rocket Bakery are good fit due to their cultural similarities. He also points out that STCU & Rocket Bakery are both perennial favorites in The Inlander's annual best of reader survey. This will be Rocket Bakery's third Downtown location with other stores open at 157 S. Howard and 1325 W. 1st Ave, their flagship location is in the heart of Millwood on Argonne Rd.
Neither STCU or Rocket Bakery have set opening dates for this new location just yet, however STCU continues to be open on the Skywalk level of the Crescent Court at 707 W. Main .
