On Feb. 22 this year The Spokesman-Review reported that Apple Inc. was interested in launching -- and hiring for -- a Spokane downtown Apple Store.
The retail community got very excited, the Apple fan base got very enthusiastic.
But Apple's spokespeople never would say when the store would come to town. A Craigslist ad said it would go into River Park Square, a downtown mall owned by The Cowles Co., the same company that owns The Spokesman-Review.
Recently, Apple Spokeswoman Amy Barney said the tech company has nothing new to add, other than what was earlier reported.
Efforts to get more information on whether the first plan has changed, and when any store would arrive, have not been successful.
