Survival rumors for NorthTown Mall Wholesale Sports not true, manager says

March 10 seems to be a firm closing date for the two area equipment retailer Wholesale Sports locations in Spokane and in Coeur d'Alene.

An OfficeHours post last month clarified and summarized the strange set of facts behind the decision. In brief, the Canadian owner of 14 U.S. Wholesales Sports locations recently sold them to two U.S. firms. One firm, Alama Group, acquired four of the 14 and plans to close them all.  Two of those four are the ones we have here.

Rumors erupted recently that someone might find a way to resurrect or extend the stay of Wholesale Sports at NorthTown Mall. 

A store manager said don't trust the rumors. "We will close on March 10. That is our last working day," the manager said.
