Outdoor clothing retailer Eddie Bauer closed its downtown Spokane retail store recently, leaving only an outlet store in the Spokane Valley, the Bellevue-based company said Friday.
Spokeswoman Sarah Redgrave said Eddie Bauer does not comment on store closures or openings. She declined to say if a new Spokane store is in the works.
“This is a normal course of business,” Redgrave said.
The store, at 710 W. Main, has been a tenant of River Park Square since 1997, after it closed another downtown store one year earlier.
Bob Smith, chief operating officer of River Park Square, said discussions were continuing with a tenant interested in the location. He said the decision to not renew the lease with Eddie Bauer was “a mutual decision.”
River Park Square is a subsidiary of Cowles Co., which also publishes The Spokesman-Review.
Smith said improvements and renovation are likely to occur before the next tenant moves into the space.
