Auntie’s to open second shop

Downtown Spokane bookseller Auntie’s Bookstore will expand into River Park Square in mid-July, said owner Chris O’Harra.

It will continue to run its larger Spokane store, at 402 W. Main, as it takes over the 3,000-square-foot, second-floor space last used by Children’s Corner Books.

O’Harra said mall management persuaded Auntie’s to make the move in part to reach a younger audience. To attract shoppers in the 18- to 34-year-old group, the store will carry magazines, greeting cards and trendy, book-themed T-shirts, in addition to a modified version of the main store’s selections, O’Harra said.

The bookshop signed a three-year lease with the mall, which is owned by Cowles Co., which also owns The Spokesman-Review.
