Doug Clark: Spokane Too Ugly for Trader Joes

Cis: I can hardly wait to see what HBO today will do with the remark in Doug Clark’s column about the Seattle clerk’s remark about why Trader Joe’s isn’t coming to CDA … Off to work, will check back to see what DFO and the gang do with that one.

DFO: Cis, I think that remark was aimed at Spokane, not Coeur d’Alene. Here it is:

Tina has returned from Seattle with shocking news on why Trader Joe’s won’t be opening a Spokane outlet. Learning Tina and her husband were from Coeur d’Alene, a checker at the popular neighborhood market told them that “Spokane was marked OFF the list to get a Trader Joe’s because … ‘it is not visually appealing.’ ”
