Second area Hobby Lobby Store to open Aug. 31 in North Spokane


View Larger Map

IF Hobby Lobby is your thing, save Aug. 31.

That's when the second of Spokane's Hobby Lobby Stores opens its doors, starting at 9 a.m.

The first was in Spokane Valley near the mall. This one is at the corner of North Division and East Lincoln Road. It's taking over a 66,000 square foot building once used by Hastings and later by Liquidation World.

The store's “official” grand opening will be the following Monday. Both events are open to the public. 

We like that the friendly corporate Lobby folks even told us, in a release, that Scarlet Suitter is the store manager of the 65,900 square-foot retail facility.

This is the Oklahoma City-based group's fifth Washington store.

Notable tidbit: Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. started as an outgrowth of Greco Products, a miniature picture frames company founded in a garage.

RTUI will add about 65 more call center workers to its North Spokane office

A Spokane call center for a national firm that produces grocery receipt advertising will ramp up operations by adding 65 workers later this year.

RTUI, based in Texas, already has 22 call center workers in Spokane at a new North side location at 4503 W. Wellesley.

National operations director Dana Wenzel said the company will add the extra workers to expand sales. The company produces register ads for about 7,000 food stores nationwide.

Call center workers arrange sales visits to potential advertisers who buy ads printed by RTUI on the receipts. Advertisers range from restaurants and fast-food eateries to auto repair shops and health and fitness retailers.

Wenzel said the salaries for RTUI workers start at roughly $30,000; that figure includes sales bonuses. Full benefits are provided after three months, he said. All the new jobs are all full-time.

Applicants for the new openings should email resumes to the company’s human resources office: employ.scc@rtui.com.
