Former Gonzaga University basketball player Dan Dickau will open The Barbers on Grand, his second area barber shop.
It’s going into 1,200 square feet in the former Walgreen’s drive-through pharmacy at 1304 S. Grand Blvd. He said he hopes to open on June 19.
Dickau, a TV and radio broadcaster during basketball season, opened his first barber shop near the North Division Y in 2013. It’s at 9331 N. Newport Highway. During the first month, his business will offer $5 haircuts, Dickau said.
“That's how I hope to help people get introduced to the business,” he said.
At his NBA page, Dan is listed at 6 foot 3, 180 pounds.
When I visited Dan at this shop, I was struck by his size. He's not 6-3 and not 180 anymore. Either he's lost weight and height, or those NBA stats were a bit inaccurate.
He does have large hands. He's a good addition, by the way, to Spokane's small business team. Welcome, Dan.
The young folks are happy now that Spokane Valley got an H&M store. Big news there.
Now the rest of the Inland Northwest gets something to celebrate: the opening on Wednesday of the new Dick's Sporting Goods store.
Why is this big? Dick's (we didn't know this before) is the largest U.S.-based full-line sporting goods retailer.
The outdoor retailer's store is also in the Spokane Valley Mall, which has to be happy that it's landed both Dick's and H&M.
The store is hosting a sports celebrity weekend celebration. Former GU hoop stat Blake Stepp will be on hand from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.
On Sunday, Dan Dickau, another Zag hall of famer, will come by from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.A press release noted the Spokane store is the retailer's third in Washington and its 518th nationwide.
