Many in Coeur d' Alene already travel into Spokane to take advantage of the 2 Spokane area locations of Cash & Carry Smart Foodservice ( 211 S. McKinnon in Spokane Valley & 7630 N. Division in Spokane). But in the coming months the Lake City will have a location of their very own.
Although an opening date and even a timeline for construction have not yet been confirmed the company is planning to build a store just a couple of blocks north of I-90 in Coeur d' Alene. Plans are for a 20,000 square foot store to be built at 208 E. Best Ave. on the vacant parcel behind Wendy's & Atiliano's .
The company's Cash & Carry stores are primarily geared towards business customers like coffee stands and restaurants with a more of a bulk item / large quantity sales method. Despite the sales being geared towards businesses , the stores are open to individuals as well. All of their stores are open seven days a week and include name brand groceries, meats , produce, catering supplies , janitorial supplies and much more.
Cash & Carry Smart Foodservice is chain of 50+ stores throughout the Northwest & Nevada. It's headquarters is in Portland although it is a part of the larger Smart & Final company which is California based and operates multiple brands of similar stores.
