Goodale & Barbieri Co. announced Tuesday that four new tenants will move into Crescent Court and open by summer.

Kalispell, Mont.-based Moose Lake Co. will occupy 4,000 square feet on the first floor adjacent to Cucina! Cucina! The store, which is expected to open July 1, is “a specialty store featuring apparel, accessories, home furnishings and gifts that capture our Northwest life style,” according to a news release.

De Rika, a store selling modern women’s apparel and accessories, leased 2,500 square feet on the Skywalk level next to Payless ShoeSource. The store is also set to open July 1.

Louie Permelia, a women’s clothing store that is in the process of relocating from River Park Square, and R. Brown Collectibles began construction last week and will open April 1 on the Skywalk level. Another tenant, Spokane Pendleton, will expand its store to 7,500 square feet to incorporate Harvey’s Men’s & Women’s, Harvey’s Big & Tall and Harvey’s Studio Shop into its group of stores.

The new tenants and those under construction give Crescent Court a 90 percent occupancy rate, said Tom Barbieri, vice president of Goodale & Barbieri.
