Philly Express to open new location near Downtown Coeur d' Alene


After sitting vacant for several months it looks like a new restaurant is opening soon in the former Subway space at 1500 Northwest Blvd. in Coeur d' Alene. Subway as you may recall moved this location to a new building on Sherman in Downtown CdA.

The restaurant, planned for the high traffic location is Philly Express. They are a locally owned and operated business that's already known for serving up some delicious and big Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches from a space inside the Silver Lake Mall. Philly Express plans this new location to be a second location with the restaurant in the mall also staying open. Hiring for the new place is underway, it will have both dine in and carry out in a about 1800 square foot space.

The Northwest Blvd Philly Express will open around May and will likely have the same menu and fast casual styling as their original store. While known for their Philly Cheesesteaks customers can also find salads, burgers, hot dogs, sausages and more. A look at their menu, and more information can be found on their website at-

New Maverick locations popping up all over Spokane, 3 under construction, 2 planned

The Utah based Maverick chain of gas stations / convenience stores is clearly finding success in the Spokane market as they continue to aggressively add new local locations. On top of the 3 that are currently in various phases of construction, and the 3 that already open for business, we're learning of 2 more stores in the immediate pipeline for Spokane. Those new locations are planned for-

( Northwest corner of Sullivan & Marietta, near the Spokane Business & Industrial Park )

Southwest corner of Francis & Market , Spokane 
( Currently only in the "pre-development conference" stage, but likely to open )

The new Maverick on Market is of interest because the lot it will be built on is occupied by a couple of run down buildings that will be removed for the new business. That location's construction planning documents include a rendering of their proposed signage that includes the Cinnabon name and logo implying it will open with a Cinnabon location inside of it.

There new planned Maverick's will join a list of 3 other new locations currently further along at-

1019 E. Francis Ave. , NE corner of Francis & Nevada in North Spokane
4337 S. Regal Ave , NE corner of S. Regal & E. 44th on the South Hill

2415 N. Argonne Rd , NW corner of N. Argonne & E. Montgomery in Spokane Valley

The location at 1019 E. Francis is the one we've been getting a lot of e-mails about because it is going into the site where Spokane Boys had sat for many years. Spokane Boys is shifting their operations to another part of their lot and not going out of business.

Maverik is known for being a clean lower priced gas station chain with a Bonfire brand of hot foods prepared on site and some other features not found in other gas stations. Their locations are mostly uniform with 5000 or so square feet and many fuel islands. For more information about Maverik visit their website at-

Update- New apartment building rising at Sprague & Madelia


Community Frameworks latest apartment building construction project is now well underway in a neighborhood of Spokane that has been in need of revitalization.

A long E. Sprague at the corner of Sprague & Madelia where a used car lot had operated is now the frame of a 3 story building to be occupied by affordably priced apartments. The building will have 36 rental units and should be ready for occupancy around October of this year.

A second phase of this project is to include a handful of townhomes behind the main building. This portion of the project is on a slightly different schedule and will be done closer to the end of the year. The project will be call 1 South Madelia , a reflection of the building's address and the second major apartment project recently for Community Frameworks who recently completed 315 West, north of Downtown. This project also joins the Sprague Union Terrace building in providing new housing and community spaces for the neighborhood.

Community Frameworks doesn't mention this project as of yet on their website, but they will. And for more information on their many programs / already open apartment developments, visit-

Renovations coming for The Otis Hotel?

Not much is known as of today about what the future holds for the vacant Otis Hotel building at 110 S. Madison St in Downtown Spokane. But if the documents I've un-covered are any indication we might be seeing a re-birth of the building that today is more famous for being used in the TV show Z Nation then any sort of permanent occupancy.

But just a few days ago a " pre-development conference " application was filed for the Otis showing a renovation plan for the building. Under that plan construction would start in about July of this year to create a new mixed use development. Newly renovated commercial space would occupy the first floor and apartments on floors 2-5.

The plan calls for just over 100 apartments, all studio and one bedroom units, likely using the micro-apartment style as the floor plans show the smallest apartments being in the 250 square foot range.

The Otis has been vacant since 2007 and was last used low income housing but was originally opened as a hotel in 1911 with a restaurant on the bottom floor. That bottom floor space will return to commercial use under the re-development plan but there is no mention of what kind of business would be there.

Keep watching this site as we expect a more formal announcement about this building in the next couple of months.

Region's first Staybridge Suites planned in Coeur d' Alene

A brand of hotel with no locations as of yet in the Inland Northwest is planning on opening a franchise here in the coming months. That brand is Staybridge Suites and they are a part of the much larger Intercontinental Hotel Group ( Holiday Inn is included under this parent company ) . They are still in planning phase for their first location here so no opening date is set yet and construction at the site likely won't start for awhile.

Staybridge Suites will open in Coeur d' Alene near the main entrance to Riverstone, just off of Northwest Blvd. The hotel is expected to occupy the entire lot immediately to the north of McDonald's and will offer 96 suites on five stories.

Plans also call for the hotel to have an indoor pool , fitness center , complimentary breakfast , wifi and more. Staybridge Suites are a more apartment style suite hotel with suites including kitchens , similar to Residence Inn hotels. The chain has been in business since the late 1990's but has really seen more aggressive expansion in the last few years. Currently the brand has over 220 locations and another 114 are in development.

This new hotel would be the second hotel to be purposed with a short stretch of the Northwest Blvd. corridor north of Downtown Coeur d' Alene. A Fairfield Inn & Suites is behind their original schedule but is apparently still planned near the Northwest Blvd. / US 95 junction. These projects will likely help alleviate the high occupancy rates hotels often hit in the resort city during the warmer months.

For more information on Staybridge Suites, visit their website at-

And, keep watching this posting as we hope to have more information like renderings and timelines soon.

Spokane / Coeur d' Alene to lose more Radio Shack stores under bankruptcy filing

Radio Shack, a Fort Worth,TX based chain of electronics stores unfortunately filed for bankruptcy protection earlier this month. This is their second time filing after the company entered and successfully exited bankruptcy in 2015 but not before shedding some 2400 stores nationwide.

Expects say Radio Shack may not be able to recover from this filing but so far no news has been officially announced on that front. Currently the chain is planning to close a little under 200 more stores and sadly it looks like 2 of the those closures are stores in our area. These locations include...

Radio Shack- Francis
1910 W. Francis Ave. ,Spokane

Radio Shack- Coeur d' Alene Town Center shopping center
131 E. Best Ave, Coeur d' Alene

Both of these locations will host clearance sales which have already started. And good news is neither will become vacant. This because after Radio Shack's last bankruptcy their existing stores became half Radio Shack and half Sprint cell phone store. In the case of both of these locations they will just become Sprint locations. However it is not mentioned if this means employee lay offs or not.

For the time being Radio Shack will also maintain 2 Spokane locations, even though this round of closures leaves Coeur d' Alene with no locations. The 2 local Radio Shacks not included in the closures ( but, this may change... ) are at Lincoln Heights shopping center ( 2829 E. 29th Ave. ) and 13516 E. Sprague Ave. in Spokane Valley.

Cooper George Building to be renovated into apartments

Note: This article is developing and will probably be updated again in the future.

South Hill Senior Living, the current assisted living center tenant of Spokane's Cooper George building is closing it's doors. They will leave the building at the beginning of May and staff and the state is currently working to find new homes for center's resident's, many of which have already relocated. 

But, while it is sad for the closure of the assisted living community. The future of the building itself is bright...

We have discovered that the Cooper George building, a 13 story building built at 707 W. 5th Ave, will be converted into a multi family apartment complex. Renovations will likely start this spring or early Summer with a new owner at the helm. The building will now be owned by an un-named Oregon based developer who is using the name Cooper George,LLC .

At this point not much is known about the apartments themselves to be built in the building but there will be a full remodel before the complex opens. The developers plan to add a fitness center and split up the historic high rise into about 144 apartments.

The building, when it re-opens will likely be in high demand as it will be just blocks away from Downtown with some apartments likely having views of the skyline. The neighborhood is also adequately served by a few STA bus lines and surrounded by some of Spokane's largest employers. Keep watching as we'll likely have more on the project, like apartment features , rent rates and opening date in the future.

New Goodwill on Northwest Blvd. to have grand opening Friday

Goodwill Industries of the Inland Northwest's newest thrift store location is about to open for business. This new Goodwill is a part of a redevelopment of the former Albertson's grocery store at 1617 W. Northwest Blvd. There Goodwill will occupy about half of the original store building with about 20,000 square feet of both retail space and a donation / processing center ( the store side is about 10,000 square feet ) .

Goodwill splits the building with a new location of the Planet Fitness chain of fitness centers. A pre-grand opening sale is going on now for Planet Fitness and they are to open their side of the building sometime around the end of this month. A new Carl's Jr. restaurant is also planned on a pad site in the parking lot. As is couple of other commercial spaces that will probably be on the part of the lot where Albertson's once operated a gas station. The building and entire site have been vacant since Albertson's closed that store in 2011.

The official grand opening celebration for Goodwill will be on Friday, Mar 17th from 9am - 8pm . Customers during the grand opening can enter to win a $50 Goodwill gift certificate. Spokane Indians mascot Otto will also be there from 9:15 - 10:15 for photos, and Kiss 98.1 will be broadcasting live at the store from 3-5.

Goodwill Industries of the Inland Northwest also currently has another store under construction over in Post Falls. That location on Hwy 41 & 16th Ave. should be also be opening in the near future and is actually a larger new replacement for the currently Post Falls Goodwill store on Seltice Way. We'll have a separate post about that store when we know more.

Washington Trust Bank to remove several South Hill buildings for new branch / eatery

It's a bit of a controversial project as it involves the demolition of 5 homes, a commercial building and a drive though coffee stand. But, Washington Trust Bank is moving forward with what they believe is a project that will benefit the South Hill neighborhood that it is to be built in.

The project calls for a site on the east side of the 3100 block of S. Grand to be redeveloped into a new branch for the bank , a restaurant and a surface parking area. This site is just feet away from an open for business branch of Washington Trust , which is smaller then the new planned branch and outdated. That branch will be relocated to this new site once it completed.

A new modern looking bank branch would be on the northern side of the site, directly at the corner of 31st & Grand. A driveway would be installed mid block to access the parking which would be on the back portion of the site. To the south at the corner of 32nd & Grand is where a new restaurant will be built although the name of that restaurant has yet to be released or even when that might get built.

There is no set opening date for the new bank location and no known timeline for the removal of the homes. However Washington Trust Bank has filed for permit with the city for demolition and grading at the site. It is said that the homes they plan to remove we're all vacant or rental properties, although they do have a significant history which is part of the reason behind the controversy on this project which has many of the site's neighbors upset over the news of this project.

What do you think, will this Washington Trust Bank project benefit the neighborhood / city or should they look elsewhere? Let us know what you think in the comments section of this story on our Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/inlandnorthwestbusinesswatch

Call for help: A new store at 37th & Grand?

Unfortunately, two Albertson's stores in Spokane closed their doors earlier this year due to lagging sales figures. But, we keep hearing a rumor about a plan for one of those two stores, yet in our research we are coming up with nothing...

Sure these maybe just rumors but I figured I'd give this a try. And, ask my amazing readers if they have any credible information on if a new store is coming into the former Albertson's store at 37th & Grand on the South Hill ???

One rumor even surrounds a chain that would be new to Spokane. It looks like there is a post about this on the South Hill NextDoor page but I unfortunately don't live on the South Hill so I can't log into that part of the NextDoor site. I'd love to share the news ( if there is news here... ) so I will be eternally grateful to anyone's help, if you know something, contact me anytime at-

Sportsman's Warehouse to open store near Spokane Valley Mall

A couple of weeks ago we shared that a Utah based construction company, that does build outs for the Sportsman's Warehouse chain was named on a building permit for a building in Spokane Valley. Albeit a bit un-usual as Sportsman's Warehouse had a store in the same general area that closed a few years ago when the chain exited the Spokane retail market.

But, now we can confirm our suspicions that Sportsman's Warehouse will be returning to Spokane Valley.

This new Spokane Valley Sportsman's Warehouse store will be on the other side of Spokane Valley Mall from where their old store once was. It will be inside the former Sports Authority store building at 15118 E. Indiana Ave. . According to permits the new store will be about 32,000 square feet total and we are waiting to hear on an opening date and how many will employed there. This will be the chain's second store to re-enter the Spokane market after another location opened at 6720 N. Division, which has been open since 2014.

Sportsman's Warehouse is a Midvale, Utah based outdoor sporting goods store. The chain specializes in hunting, fishing , camping and other outdoor recreation merchandise . They operate stores in a total of 18 states and growing once more. They also did recently open another store in our region on N. Stratford Rd. in Moses Lake.

Vanity to close all stores, including in our area

It's happened again, a mostly mall driven retailer has entered bankruptcy and announced they will close all stores. This time the bankruptcy/ store closings effect the Fargo based Vanity chain of Women's clothing and accessories. They operate 140 stores in 20+ states, all of which will close with going out of business sales coming. All employees of Vanity will be laid off...


The closing will directly effect the Spokane / Coeur d Alene area as Vanity had 3 locations in our area. Those stores we're inside Spokane Valley Mall, Northtown Mall and Silver Lake Mall over in Coeur d' Alene.

Like most of the recent retail store closings the company does say the bankruptcy is largely due to stiff competition from internet retailers.


Restaurant Openings & Closings- Mar. 2nd

Unfortunately we do have a couple of rather sad restaurant closures in the Spokane area. But we do have one opening that was highly anticipated and but more details on a new restaurant coming to Coeur d' Alene. Here's the info-


The Ivory Table's cafe temporarily closing due to construction

The Ivory Table will temporary close down their storefront café at 1822 E. Sprague . This will happen during this Summer's planned major construction to renovate this section of E. Sprague. The business itself will still be operating however with a bigger focus on catering , private parties and special events .

This temporary closure hasn't happened just yet however so as of today The Ivory Table is still open for business. The Ivory Table is a locally owned and operated café with sandwiches , salads and a big variety of crepes .

White Box Café & Bakery closes it's doors

After 15 years in business White Box at 1215 N. Ruby has closed down their shop, near Gonzaga. While they are leaving the cafe business but they are not completely abandoned the business, which is famous for it's White Box Pies.

They say to watch their website at http://www.whiteboxpiesbakery.com for their future as they point out they may do farmers markets and / or online orders at some point.

Panera Bread opens in North Spokane

After months of permitting and then construction the Panera Bread chain has finally opened for business at their first restaurant to fall within the city limits of Spokane ( their other area locations are in Spokane Valley & Hayden ) . This new Panera Bread is located at 6550 N. Division out front of Lowe's.

The new Panera Bread location has more modern style, 5100 square feet of space and about 65-75 employees.

More details come forward for Cosmic Cowboy Grill coming soon to Coeur d' Alene

Here at INBW HQ I've been aware of the plan for a restaurant called Cosmic Cowboy Grill at 412 W. Haycraft ( corner of Haycraft & US 95 ) in Coeur d' Alene . But until now we had no details...

Turns out this Cosmic Cowboy Grill will take over a completely remodeled strip mall section that was formerly a wig shop and picture framing shop. The business will be a fast casual concept that serves sandwiches, wraps, "creative" salads and desserts. They will offer these items made from locally sourced grilled to order meats and farm fresh vegetables .

The business will be a healthy alterative with vegan , gluten free and low carb menu options also available . More to come...
