Our second leftover from the Merch Madness story that ran today in The Spokesman-Review.
Cravens Coffee, a big fan of GU basketball, has seen plenty of sales for its Zags Blend coffee.
Since Neil Everett is an announcer at ESPN, company owners Simon Thompson and Becky Templin sent two bags of Zags Blend to ESPN's Connecticut office.
“Everett is a graduate of Lewis and Clark H.S.,” Thompson said. It was worth a shot, and maybe on a slow day someone would be seen pouring out a cup of the Spokane-roasted coffee.
So far, however, that's all there is to the story. Not even a thank you note, at last check.
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.
