While Spokane was outbid for Amazon's HQ2 , we are still home to several awesome companies that are growing. Two such companies are even expanding their HQ's here by moving into a formerly under utilized large building in Spokane Valley .
Etailz,Inc. is a large partner site, selling goods on Amazon, Jet, Ebay, Wal-Mart, Wish and Alibaba's websites. The company is actually owned by the much larger Trans World Entertainment of New York, but the main Etailz HQ is here in Spokane. Well, now Spokane Valley.
Etailz is now in a 40,000 square foot space within the from Itron building at 2818 N. Sullivan Rd. In Etailz's case the company is already operating out of the new facility, where they employ about 250. Previously the company had operated in a much smaller office space at the McKinstry Station building nearby Gonzaga. With this new move Etailz now has 4 times the office space, while still enjoying a casual, sort of hip working environment.
Also, coming later this year to the building at 2818 N. Sullivan Rd. will be the HQ of Stay Alfred. This company is unique business currently headquartered in a smaller building on Sprague Ave in Downtown Spokane. Stay Alfred operates travel apartments in 25 US cities and is known for leasing cool and upscale places in lively locations. It was even recently announced that Stay Alfred will operate one floor of " The M " apartment building in Downtown Spokane. The concept is somewhat similar to Airbnb, VRBO but still a bit more cool and unique.
Within the former Itron building, Stay Alfred will occupy a little more then 37,000 square feet with likely much of the same office features as their neighbors at Etailz. Stay Alfred will likely move in later this year as construction permits we're issued just last week for the build out of their offices.
There is still even more space available for lease in the same building on N. Sullivan ( info http://sdsrealty.com ) so perhaps we'll see even more cool new company's coming soon to Spokane Valley, stay tuned...
