Local business owner Jason McSteen like to tell the story about how in 2012 he walked in to the Union Gospel Mission with nothing to his name but 16 Cents, 3 Shoes & 5 Socks . So much so that a few years later, after turning his life around, Jason McSteen now operates a fast growing small chain of furniture stores in Spokane called none other then 16 Cents, 3 Shoes & 5 Socks. Which the business itself even has been a success story as it was originally started as just a mattress shop in a garage.
Today that once tiny business made the announcement that they are growing once more. 16 Cents announced that they will be opening a new third location at 1233 N. Division ( Division & Sharp ) in a building that has sat vacant for the last several years, except for a couple of seasonal stints as Spirit Halloween stores ( last permanent use was a Mattress Outlet if I recall ).
The new store will occupy the entire 22,000+ square foot building and will be a full furniture store, not just mattresses, but everything for most any room of your home. The new 16 Cents location is actually already open for business now and they already have filled a good chunk of the space with truckloads of furniture with more to come. While they are now open, the business plans to do some remodeling to the space and will convert the back room area of the building into a distribution center to also serve 16 Cents' two other locations.
The two other locations of 16 Cents, 3 Shoes & 5 Socks will also remain open for business as usual. Those stores can be found at 6821 N. Division and 2006 N. Ash. The stores also pride themselves on offering credit for furniture purchases, at zero down in some cases, even to people with less then perfect credit.
