Bake My Day planning small new bake shop in the Garland District

 Bake My Day is a bit of a hidden gem in the Inland Northwest. The business is a locally owned and operated drive thru bakery at 34911 N. Newport Hwy in Chattaroy. Those who know the place, love the place.


With a fresh scratch made menu of half pound cinnamon rolls, scones, cookies, muffins and more all made with organic flour, real butter, pure vanilla,etc. . With a quality product and friendly local owner, they are bound to grown. And, while they intend to keep the Newport Hwy location. they also have recently announced that they will be opening a new second location soon in Spokane's Garland District.

Bake My Day plans to open in small storefront at 1015 W. Garland Ave. , across the street and about a block west of the Garland Theatre, a prime location for a small bakery. And, while the space isn't huge, they also say they plan to work with the locally owned and operated Treehouse Delivery for delivery of their baked goods all around the area.

They hope to be open in the new space by May and have started a GoFundMe campaign to raise a few more needed funds.

The Mill, mixed-use building under construction on Government Way in Coeur d' Alene


Construction is underway for another new mixed-use development coming soon to Coeur d' Alene. Local developer, Widmyer Corporation along with Spokane based general contractor Yost Gallagher Construction are building a project called The Mill at the corner of N. Government Way and Mill Ave. Architectural design for the project is being done by Momentum Architecture, also of Coeur d' Alene. 

Located just a couple of miles north of Lake Coeur d' Alene the project is bringing more housing and space for new retail and/or restaurants. The four-story building will offer 43 apartments, with varying floor plans, on the upper floors and the ground floor will house the building lobby in addition to commercial space.



The Mill will offer 5 store front spaces ranging from 879 square foot to a little more than 1800 square feet. We checked in, and so far none of the commercial spaces have been leased, but there are many possibilities for what types of businesses might open there and we plan to watch for future news about this project.

Currently site work is well underway behind the large construction fence. As of now they plan to have the building complete and open for tenants and shoppers alike by April 2023. For more information on The Mill and Widmyer Corporation's other projects around the Coeur d' Alene area (both commercial and residential), visit their website at http://www.widmyercorp.com

New return reseller, Spokane Bins opening soon in Spokane

 Spokane Bins is coming soon to an 1800 square foot space at 14 E. Mission #5, just north of Downtown Spokane. The new business will be a returned merchandise reseller, a recently trending discount store concept which has been popping up elsewhere around the country.

The store plans to acquire returned good trucks from Amazon, both completely unsorted goods and general merchandise products. Products are emptied into bins and can vary wildly from small cheap items to the significantly more valuable. Amazon sells thousands of products so the merchandise could actually be anything.

Spokane Bins plans to have their grand opening at 11am on Feb 5th. After that, they plan to have the store open on Fri-Mon. 11-6p, allowing for restocking to happen on the off days. The unsorted merchandise will be priced starting at $12, then decreasing in price every day with a $1 day every week. The other more pre-sorted merchandise would be priced differently with a $50 Max. All of this is their current opening plans and can change, check with the store directly for the most exact and current news.

New buildings in Kendall Yards near completion

 One of the larger construction sites in the City of Spokane over the last few months has been a new addition to Kendall Yards. Two buildings have been being built, led by general contractor Baker Construction & Development, near the entry to Kendall Yards. The site falls in-between the My Fresh Basket grocery store and the existing Kendall Yards Business District. And, while crews will likely still be there for a time, we're beginning to see people and business moving in now, meaning completion is imminent.




The upper floors of both buildings are made of apartments, which are considered a new apartment complex called Jefferson Alley and managed by Rockwood Property Management. The larger " West of Jefferson " building contains 41 apartments and the Flatiron Building houses 8 more unique apartments. We checked and the apartments in the larger building we're to come available for leases starting on Jan. 14th, with the Flatiron Building apartments coming soon. Studio, one- and two-bedroom floor plans will be available at Jefferson Alley, with rent ranging from $1235 to around $3100 a month. 

For more info on Jefferson Alley Apartments, visit http://jeffersonalley.net

The ground floor of both new buildings will be commercial space. There are no leases signed just yet on the Flatiron Building, although something is surely coming soon there. The larger "West of Jefferson" building presently has two businesses for sure coming soon to its commercial space.

One such business is Prairie Dog Pet Mercantile, who is relocating to the new storefront from just down the street on W. Summit Pkwy. I'm told after they move, Spark, a non-profit who also has space already in Kendall Yards will expand into their former pet store space.  This will be a big move for Prairie Dog Pet Mercantile going from just 700 SF to 2500 SF.

For more info on Prairie Dog Pet Mercantile, visit http://pdogpet.com 

Additionally, a new restaurant is also coming to this area of Kendall Yards as well. However, we reached out to the leaseholder for more info and we're a bit too early, as they are still working on their plans and don't want to share their info for a few weeks. We plan to check back in the future and report on this as soon as we respectfully are able.

Elsewhere, in Kendall Yards we continue to occasionally check in on the construction at Uprise Brewing. While technically, the project is not physically in Kendall Yards (it's across the street) the project is coming together to open a new brewery at 617 N. Ash. An actual building is now on the site, and we understand the new brewery is to open for business this Summer.

Boiada Brazilian Grill coming soon to Downtown Spokane

 A new Brazilian restaurant is on its way to Downtown Spokane. Boiada Brazilian Grill will take over the former Maracas Mexican Restaurant building at 245 W. Spokane Falls Blvd, nearby the Spokane Convention Center. Jesse Fox,MBA of SVN Cornerstone represented Boiada in the transaction. Maracas plans to leave Downtown but will keep their South Hill location open at 2910 E. 57th Suite #4. 


This will be the second location for Boiada Brazilian Grill, occupying the entire 7,000 SF building which they intend to do a full remodel on. Currently Boiada Brazilian Grill operates in Kennewick and from what we understand the new Spokane location will be the same as their existing location.

Boiada Brazilian Grill offers an all you can eat menu using the churrascaria style of cooking. A full bar and salad bar are also planned. No opening date has been announced but will likely be around this Summer as building permits to demo certain parts of the interior have already been filed for with the City of Spokane.

Large RV Park coming near Cabela's in Post Falls




This snow filled parcel in Post Falls doesn't exactly inspire warm summer nights in the RV, splashing around in the on-site pool, bonfires, etc.  But it will soon enough as construction crews already made some progress in the last half of 2021 for what will one day soon open as the Post Falls RV Campground. 

The RV Campground will be located at 70 W. Cabelas Way, in-between Cabela's and the State Line Wal-Mart store in the Pointe at Post Falls development area. The park will actually be locally owned and will be operated as a sister park to North Spokane RV Campground and the Liberty Lake RV Campground that actually just opened for business last year in Liberty Lake.

Plans call for 129 RV sites on 13 acres with 70 pass thru sites and 61 back in sites. The RV Campground will have modern conveniences and will additionally feature a clubhouse, swimming pool, recreation areas, dog park and an on-site office.

The opening date has been announced just yet. However, we plan to keep an eye on the site's progress which will likely pick up as we reach the warmer months.
