The Arc of Spokane, a nonprofit that provides support and services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities is planning to add a new second location of their thrift store operations. The nonprofit has operated a popular thrift store inside a former big box store, at 808 N. Ruby, just north of Downtown for several years. But they are now hoping to replicate that success with a new store coming soon to Spokane Valley.
The Arc of Spokane recently leased a 15,000 SF space at 1441 N. Argonne Rd Suite A, adjacent to Altitude Trampoline Park in the Argonne Mission center for that new store. SVN Cornerstone Designated Broker Guy D. Byrd represented The Arc in the space's lease transaction, and Bryan Walker of Black Commerical, Inc. represented the landlord.
The N. Argonne location was chosen for its ideal central location and size. The Arc's thrift operations help sustain and further the primary mission of The Arc, which is to serve and advocate for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and their families in the greater Spokane area. The Arc of Spokane is a chapter of the Arc of Washington and The Arc of the United States.
No opening date is indicated just yet for the new Spokane Valley thrift store location, however mechanical permits have been pulled to renovate the space and when we stopped by late last week, workers we're obviously hard at work going in and out the space.
