Bend,OR based Les Schwab Tire Centers is planning to construct a new store in Liberty Lake, with building permits already being applied for. Currently the purveyor of tires, brakes and other auto-related services operates many locations in the area including one a few miles to the west in the 15000 blk of E. Sprague in Spokane Valley, but none within the City of Liberty Lake, until now.
According to the building permit application the new store will be built at 22400 blk of E. Appleway, across Appleway from Taco Bell in a mostly unused section of the parking lot for the Liberty Lake Business Park development. The store is planned to be a 9,586 SF stand-alone concrete block building with showroom, offices, six work bays and tire storage. Site improvements will also be done for new landscaping and improved parking.
The project's general contractor is currently listed as TBD, architectural work is being done by Cushing Terrell of Boise. The applied for permits are currently shown to expire in Feb. of 2023, so we expect construction to start not long after their issuance with an opening in the coming months, perhaps before the end of 2022.
