David’s Pizza: new location selected; opening date not certain

Well-established pizza places tend to hang on. Case in point: popular David's Pizza, which has operated for more than a dozen years on North Hamilton in the Gonzaga district, is relocating downtown.

Owner Mark Starr said he hoped to reopen the new David's in September. Permits and paperwork now look to push that back until October.

The new site is about 5,200 square feet of leased space at 803 N. Post (photo above). That's not the same building as the one that has his old David's signs sitting on top. The 803 address is at the corner of Post and Mallon, about a half block east from where the signs are stored. (Property owner Marcus DeWood is allowing Starr to store the signs there until they can be refurbised.)

Starr continues operating a catering business out of his second restaurant, Famous Ed's on Spokane's South Hill.

Starr left his old location in July after property owner John Stockton decided to raze the building and build a new retail center at that site. Starr said he could have stayed except he couldn't arrange a deal for the amount of space needed.
