At Home to open a store in Coeur d' Alene

Soon the At Home chain will have 2 places to call home in the Inland Northwest. Earlier this year it was confirmed that At Home will be opening in a part of the former N. Division Costco building. That store is supposed to open sometime around April of this year and will soon after be joined by a Texas Roadhouse and another yet to be named tenant.


But, that won't be the only store in our area for the Texas based chain. The company will also begin construction soon to convert the former Kmart store in Coeur d' Alene into another At Home store. The store will occupy the entire building, meaning the store will be about 87,400 square feet or a similar size to the planned Spokane store. The Coeur d' Alene store will open sometime later this year, we will update when we know a more exact date.


Improvements will also be done to the site, including a full renovation of the area that was Kmart's garden center. That space will not be part of the At Home store but will instead be a multi tenant commercial space for retail and restaurants. The main building will also be largely updated.


At Home is a Plano,TX based chain of big box stores that carry over 50,000 unique items including furniture, garden, housewares, rugs, home décor and a lot of seasonal merchandise. They consider themselves " The Home & Holiday Décor Superstore ". They are adding new stores rapidly but a recent count showed them at about 600 stores. These will be the first At Home stores to come to our area however.
