Living Water expanding operations

Living Water Lawn and Tree Care, which has been in business in Spokane for more than two decades, is expanding and adding a second location at 8227 N. Regal Ave.

Company CEO Paul Brown said the expansion will include new partners, Ron and Carol Davis, and a new business name: Living Water Landscape Services.

The company is taking 3,600 square feet of space inside a renovated north Spokane commercial building.

The business provides pruning, mowing, landscaping, sprinkler maintenance and installing for residential and commercial customers.

The current location at 6925 E Bigelow Gulch Road will continue as the firm’s lawn and tree care division, and administrative offices.

Gary Kuster of  Windermere Commercial and Guy D. Byrd  of Cornerstone Property  Advisors brokered the sale.

Spokane Exercise relocates

Gary and Patti Pettigrew, owners of Spokane Exercise Equipment, are moving their retail sports equipment store to the former Huppin’s building at 421 W. Main Ave.

They’ve been in their current building, in the Bennett Block, since 1996.

The goal is to reopen around March 1, said Gary Pettigrew.

The relocation is due, in part, to plans by Bennett Block owner Dru Hieber to renovate the building.

The Pettigrews will take about 2,500 square feet plus 1,000 square feet of storage on the west side of the main floor of the renovated Huppin’s property.

An investment company paid $1.25 million for the Huppin’s building in December. It’s completing other improvements to lease out the rest of the main floor and the second level.

NAI Black’s Mark McLees, of Spokane, was the broker of the sale to the new owners.

Vic Overholser and Levi McCormick, both with SDS Realty Inc. and Gary Miller, with Lease Source Property Management, handled the lease.
