New Iron Horse Restaurant Features Antiques, Collectibles

A Coeur d’Alene eatery is expanding to the Valley.

The Iron Horse restaurant will be opening this winter at 11105 E. Sprague, the building that formerly housed Tommie’s Restaurant and Bakery.

The 4,600-square foot restaurant is currently undergoing renovations. The remodeling project will cost $200,000 to complete, said Aaron Robb, who manages his family’s restaurant in Coeur d’Alene.

The eatery will feature an antique and collectible theme with items from the 1920s and 1930s, Robb said.

The restaurant and bar will be open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. with full lunch and dinner menus, including sandwiches, burgers, steaks and pastas.

Robb said his brother Mike will manage the day-to-day operations at the Valley restaurant.

The family looked at possible sites on the South Hill and the North Side but decided on the Valley location, Robb said.

Future Shop to open Nov. 29

A new electronics store is set to open in the Valley.

Future Shop will sell consumer electronics such as televisions, VCRs, and stereo equipment, as well as computers, printers, fax machines, appliances and music at its new store at 115 N. Sullivan.

The 30,000-square foot Valley store will open Nov. 29.

Another Future Shop, the 100th in the retail chain, will open on the same day at 9610 N. Newport Highway in north Spokane.

The Vancouver, B.C.-based retail chain guarantees it will beat any competitor’s advertised price by 55 percent of the difference, said company spokesman Eric Ommundsen.

Both Future Shop stores will have listening bars for shoppers to preview any compact disc in the store.

The Valley store will employ 40 to 50 people in full- and part-time positions.
