A Cellular Sales store from Verizon Wireless will replace what has been several restaurants in the building being reconstructed on the northwest corner of Appleway and Fourth.
It will be the company’s first Idaho location with the nearest in Kennewick, Wash. Headquartered in Knoxville, Tenn., the company has 560 stores in 30 states.
Planning to open Oct. 10, the store will have about 20 employees. Check www.cellularsales.com.
New office building at Lakeside-Eighth
A 3,750-square-foot office building for one to four tenants (about 945 square feet each) is under construction on the southwest corner of Lakeside Avenue and Eighth Street downtown.
A quiet, stout, energy-efficient building will result from the construction process using ICF (insulated concrete form) blocks stacked to make the walls of the place, said spokesman Robert Provost. The walls are then filled with 6 inches of concrete insulated by the foam blocks and serve as attachment points for the siding and drywall.
JL Design Build’s Jef Lemmon is the principal architect and builder and Reid Weathers the project manager. Potential occupants can contact The Tamarack Co. at 640-9693.

Now for the Tidbits
- Yes, many of the “new place” Tidbits are repetitious week to week until the new places are in business. But each week some are gone and new ones are added.
- Watch for an office of Waddell & Reed at 320 E. Neider, The Beauty Lounge and Prana Juice Bar on Sunset Avenue, Hart Capital in the McEuen Terrace building and Sweet Lou’s Restaurant and Tap House in the Parkside building on Front Avenue, Grabbagreen at Highway 95-Neider and the gas station-convenience store in the southwest corner of Highway 95 and Lancaster.
- On Sherman Avenue watch for Rustic restaurant at 309 Sherman (next to Clark’s Jewelry), Mountain Madness Soap at 310 Sherman (the former Everson Jewelry building), Community First Bank at 504 Sherman, STCU at 401 Front and a Starbucks where the gas-convenience store is at Sherman and Seventh.
- We also have Schini Family Dentistry building a new place in Riverstone and Sweeto Burrito building near Winco. New places in Post Falls will be Corby’s Tavern where the Good Time Tav was at Seltice and Elm, Popeyes, Green & Grounds Coffee Shop, Cricket Wireless, Silverlake Automotive, The Lean Bean and Dutch Bros. Coffee.
- Places evidently coming to the revised Post Falls Outlet Mall include 59:Escape Adventures, Ace Industrial Supply, SNR Costume Rental, Black-Ops Self Defense, My Big Fat Greek Deli, a comic book store and a coffee espresso store.
- Hopefully, the second-story facade being added to the new Verizon store at Appleway-Fourth won’t have one of those blaring-blinking advertisements that distract drivers.
- In writing, nicknames written behind first names (such as Henry “Scoop” Jackson) should be in quote marks unless that’s how the person is known, such as sports figures Babe Ruth and Tiger Woods.
