Here’s the Dirt: Weight Watchers opens stores

Weight Watchers opens stores

Weight Watchers has opened storefronts in north Spokane and Spokane Valley where members can meet and weigh in, and where the company sells diet foods and weight-loss tools.

“This gives us more visibility and we can just be there all the time when people need us,” said local leader Francie Radecki.

The North Side store opened last week at 814 W. Francis Ave., Suite 4. The Valley store opened after Christmas at 13910 E. Indiana Ave., Suite C, next to Hobby Lobby and the glazed temptations of HoneyBaked Ham.

Most days each location will host a couple of Weight Watchers group meetings, and staff will be on hand to answer questions. The stores are open daily by 9 a.m. and will close around 7 or 8 p.m. weekdays, 2 p.m. on weekends.

Food items for sale include sweet and salty snacks, smoothie mixes and oatmeal. Program materials, available for members to buy, include food scales, cookbooks, measuring spoons, pedometers and exercise kits.
