It's been the talk of the internet recently regarding all the store closing announcements effecting some once popular retail store chains. The Limited was one that recently closed ( or is closing, I could be wrong as to where they are in the process ) but they didn't have stores in our area. WetSeal and Aeropostale are in the Spokane area and have struggled financially in recent months but appear to be staying open at this point in time .
But the biggest store closure announcements lately have been surrounding Macy's , Sears and K-Mart all 3 of which actually operate multiple stores in the Spokane / Coeur d' Alene area. So naturally the question keeps being asked, " will any of the store closures effect our area's stores " ?
The answer is NO.
Looks like this round we'll just be watching the news stories of stores closing in other parts of the country, as none of the stores for these 3 chains list their locations around here. Now do keep in mind this can change and stores can be added or are being hidden from the currently released lists but it appears very positive for us.
Some stores in the Northwest will be effected however as Macy's in Salem,OR , Nampa,ID , the Downtown Portland Macy's , a Kmart in Tacoma,WA and a Sears in Lynwood, WA are all among the new store closure lists.
Have any tips of stores in the Spokane / Coeur d' Alene area that will be closing ( or opening ) let us know- firstname.lastname@example.org
