Back in October of 2023 representatives with Georgia based Home Depot filed for a pre-development conference to discuss the possibility of constructing a new store on Spokane's South Hill. Although this provides awareness of a company's thoughts on what they want to build, many of these pre-development projects never make it beyond this phase.
But, it's now looking more likely that a new Home Depot store on the South Hill will come to fruition as the company's plans have moved forward. While building permits have yet to be applied for, last week the company did enter the SEPA application process to determine the environmental impact of their project.
According to the plans Home Depot plans to demolish the abandoned Shopko store at 4515 S. Regal St and build a new 107,891 SF Home Depot store with an attached 26,261 SF garden center on the south side of the building. Plans call for keeping and improving upon the existing parking lot, which will include a small area for rental equipment and seasonal garden center displays.
In the SEPA application it is noted that the company plans to start construction in the Spring/Summer of this year with a grand opening currently planned for the Summer of 2025. There is no mention of how many people will be employed at the new store, this will be the 5th Home Depot store in Spokane and Kootenai Counties.
