Construction and new businesses coming to Airway Heights is nothing new. But this I figured I'd better mention this early as construction is about to begin on a lot that was originally to be a new Walgreen's.
While we can't rule out Walgreen's building elsewhere in Airway it won't be raising a the corner of US 2 and Hayford Rd. The site, across from STCU will in fact soon be home to a Maverik gas station and convenience store. Continuing Maverik's somewhat quick expansion into the Spokane market.
The new Airway Heights Maverik will be similar to the other locations of the Utah based chain. It will have a 4300 square foot convenience store with a 12 pump canopy covered fueling area in the front and 4 more covered pumps on the eastern side of the property. Like other Maverik locations they will sell all standard c-store items including a line of hot foods made in store and sold under the Bon Fire brand name.
This will be 8th location of the Maverik chain in the Spokane area, with another 2 open over in the Coeur d' Alene area. But this won't mark the end of Maverik's expansion into our area as planning has started for a new location just north of Downtown on Ruby and not 1 but 2 stores in the works for Post Falls.
