Announced back in March, the area's newest Sportsman's Warehouse store is now open for business with a grand opening celebration planned for tomorrow morning ( Aug. 3rd, 2017 ) . The new store occupies what once was a Sports Authority store at 15118 E. Indiana Ave, just a short trip to the east of Spokane Valley Mall.
The new store occupies the entire 32,000 square foot space next door to a Home Goods and a Joann Fabrics. It sells all of the sporting goods and outdoors merchandise items one expects from the Utah based Sportsman's Warehouse chain. They offer departments for hunting ( including firearm sales ) , fishing/marine, camping, clothing, shoes/waders and more.
This is the chain's second location in Spokane but they are not new to the area, the chain once had 3 stores in the Inland Northwest. All of those closed however to reorganize the company a few years back. Their first store to return the companies presence to the Inland Northwest is the store at 6720 N. Division which will also remain open.
With the opening of this store Sportsman's Warehouse will operate 84 retail locations in 22 states, it will be the 11th store in Washington State. The grand opening will begin at 8:30am Thursday morning with the first 200 shoppers to though the door to receive a $20 gift card and a free Sportsman's Warehouse hat. A large celebration will also kick off the morning with members of the community like Rod Higgins, Mayor of Spokane Valley and many more on hand to speak and welcome the company back to Spokane Valley. If you can't make it for the morning celebrations sales will continue sales, give away's and factory representatives on site for some time after.
This looks to be the only new Sportsman's Warehouse store planned to open in our area at this point in time. The chain however will also open 1 other location for sure this year down in Stockton,CA . The company is a publicly traded firm that employs thousands and despite tough times in the past the company seems to be back in expansion mode.
