The Dirt: Jaazz Salon, Champion Home Exteriors, Sportsman’s Warehouse

Jaazz Salon relocates store

Jaazz Salon is moving from its current site in downtown Spokane, taking over renovated space on the ground floor of the former Huppin’s building at 421 W. Main Ave.

Owners Mark and Sonna Brado started the salon business in Cheney in the 1980s. Their first downtown location was at the corner of Washington Street and Main Avenue. In 2004 they moved to the American Legion Building, at 108 N. Washington St.

They’re taking about 2,600 square feet in the renovated building now owned by Chris Batten, John Pariseau and Bobby Brett.

The interior design will be provided by HDG Hissong Design Group.

“What we’ll have is a sleeker and cooler-looking salon,” Mark Brado said.

The move is expected to happen this autumn.

Champion opens Valley store

Champion Home Exteriors has opened its first Spokane location at 11303 E. Montgomery Drive in Spokane Valley.

The Ohio-based home-improvement company sells replacement windows, entry doors, roofing and siding. It also offers installation services for customers.

It has locations in Seattle and Olympia.

Outdoor chain plans new store

Sportsman’s Warehouse, the Utah-based national outdoor recreation and sporting goods chain, will open a north Spokane store next spring, moving into the vacant building at 6720 N. Division St.

It’s leasing and renovating a 35,000-square-foot retail building at the corner of Lyons and Division.

Sportsman’s Warehouse is leasing from the commercial real estate operation of developer Harlan Douglass.

The store will operate seven days a week with roughly 50 employees, said company spokeswoman Karen Seaman.

The retailer expects to offer roughly 75,000 products.
