Downtown Coeur d'Alene growing

Business Bits

Print Article

With hopes to extend the business core of downtown to Seventh Street, a retail building called Plaza on Sherman is planned for the vacant southeast corner of Seventh and Sherman.

The corner had Senor Froggy's eatery a few years back and plans for a six-story structure there were changed to the new plan. With hopes for construction to begin this fall and complete next spring, the 5,500-square-foot, single-story building would house three or four tenants and have parking to the rear. The only committed tenant is Subway, and about 4,000 square feet remain available. Erik Nelson of Kiemle & Hagood Realty (509-220-4042, erik.nelson@khco.com) is handling the project.

The project developer is VIQ Development of Boise. It's the company's first project in North Idaho, although it has developed many commercial properties in the Northwest and California.

All Star Guitars in Post Falls

Guitars of all varieties, other stringed instruments, parts, accessories and minor repairs are available at All Star Guitars in Suite A of Seltice Center at 205 E. Seltice Way, Post Falls.

Learning guitar from his father, owner Dan Howard has been in the guitar business since 1975 in Napa, Calif., and came to North Idaho in May. His son now has the Napa store. Howard hosts jam sessions for bluegrass/country/acoustic guitarists 7-10 p.m. the first and third Wednesdays of each month. The store will be adding drums and accessories.

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 10 to 5 p.m. Saturdays. Phone 457-3202. Email allstargtr@comcast.net.

Options for Thermal Pressure Massage

Treatments in the store and products for the home are offered at Ceragem Thermal Massage in Suite 201 of Mullan Plaza at 780 N. Cecil Road (at Mullan Road), Post Falls.

Owners Pavel and Galina Grishko offer showroom deep tissue thermo massages (with the first three free) and sell Ceragem massaging beds, mattress pads and portable neck massagers. Originally from Ukraine, they came to the United States about 20 years ago and were trained in the massage business in Los Angeles. They came to Spokane nine years ago. Their Post Falls store opened last month.

Store hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays. Phone (509) 435-7403. Check www.ceragem.com.

Hang on for several Tidbits

- The Post Falls Doughnut House is now Doughnut Dugout to reflect owner Dennis Gross' love of baseball. Offering eat-in and take-out doughnuts, other pastries, coffee and soon espresso, the store is always open in Harbor Ridge Center across Seltice Way from the Trading Co. store.

- Not being a country boy, when writing about Big R's new outdoor fencing lot last week I wrote "squeeze shoot" instead of "squeeze chute." Oops. Several readers let me know. Maybe I got that from "They shoot horses, don't they?"

- Idaho's "Famous Potatoes" on the license plates still fits. The state produces 21.2 percent of the U.S. market followed by Washington at 19.1 and California at 9.1.

- Places closing include: Double Discount Grocery at 402 E. Seltice, closing when the inventory is sold. One more Thing! in downtown Coeur d'Alene closed Saturday as owner Kay Schilling retired. Sweet B's Cupcakes behind Scratch restaurant closed in downtown Cd'A.

- People not removing their yard/garage/estate sale signs ought to be fine for littering.

- In times, write "noon" and "midnight." Readers confuse 12 p.m. and 12 a.m.

- When chemists die, they barium.
