Buffalo Exchange to open in Downtown Spokane in Mid-August

 Buffalo Exchange, the original buy/sell/trade clothing store is coming soon to Downtown Spokane at 407 W. Main. And they recently announced the store is set to open to the public on August 18th.

Shoppers will find a curated selection of everyday styles, contemporary trends, vintage treasures and designer pieces at affordable prices. "We couldn't be more excited to move into Spokane" said Rebecca Block, vice president of Buffalo Exchange. "We fell in love with the area when my daughter went to school here. When we first found the location on Main Ave. - it immediately felt like home. The historic building looks incredibly similar to the first Buffalo Exchange store, which opened in 1974 in Tucson, AZ."

Buffalo Exchange stores make the selling process easy for those looking to clean out closets. For anything they're able to purchase, customers can choose between taking home 25% of the selling price in cash or 50% in store credit on the spot. Those who opt for store credit can shop that same day or take a trade card for later, which never expires.

Beyond their commitment to recycling clothing, Buffalo Exchange says they are committed to environmental sustainability and giving back to the communities their stores are a part of. Instead of single-use bags, the store offers customers .05 cent to one of three rotating local non-profits though their "Tokens for bags" program. Since 1994. the company has raised over $926,025 for thousands of non-profits. The first Spokane organizations to participate will be 2nd Chance Ranch, Our Place Community Outreach and Spokane Riverkeeper

Buffalo Exchange remains a family-operated clothing company that now has 41 stores in 15 states. More information about the company can be found on their website at , as well as TikTok and Instagram

Permits applied for new Lego Store at River Park Square

 Although not confirmed by Lego or River Park Square's management, building permit records are indicating that a new Lego store is coming soon to Downtown Spokane. 

Lego applied for a permit yesterday via a permit filing company for a 7020 SF street level retail store. The store is to occupy suite 121, which has been vacant and was last used by The North Face prior to their move. The North Face now occupies another street facing space in-between the Apple Store and Urban Outfitters

Permit data on file with the City of Spokane indicate they are planning a tenant improvement of the suite including "mechanical, electrical, plumbing and display shelving". The general contractor for the project is Planit Construction of Fort Lauderdale,FL with architectural work done by Nelson Worldwide of Cincinnati,OH and engineering by Marque Engineering also of Cincinnatti,OH. . The building permit application is currently in plan review and not approved, so an opening date is not available. We will update/do another post on this site when we learn more about the planned store.

Noteworthy on this news is a locally owned and operated Lego product business called Brick Buy Brick recently opened at 3915 N. Monroe St in the Garland District. While not affiliated with the Lego company or this recent permit app, it is important to remember our city's local alternative. Check them out
