The Dirt: Liberty Lake Wine Cellars building new production facility, tasting room

Liberty Lake Wine Cellars is building a new production facility and tasting room, with plans to move there after this summer.

The nearly 4,300-square-foot facility, at 23110 E. Knox in Liberty Lake, will expand the winery’s production capacity to meet demand for its bold red wines. The business makes wine from grapes sourced from the Red Mountain area in Benton County.

Processing for 2017 wines after harvest will be done in the new facility starting in September. The current winery, at 1018 S. Garry Road in Liberty Lake, will continue to operate through the summer.

Winery owners Mark and Sarah Lathrop, of Coeur d’Alene, plan to increase tasting room hours at the new location, and the site has better access and parking.

Steel Structures America is the project’s builder, and Longwell + Trapp Architects designed the facility.

Restaurant to rise at Kendall Yards

A Kendall Yards commercial building, called Nettleton Building One, is scheduled for construction near the west end of the Spokane development.

Planning documents with the city of Spokane describe a one-story, 4,600-square-foot building at 411 N. Nettleton. The proposed use is for a restaurant.

Another structure of about equal size also is in the planning stages. Nettleton Building Two, at 443 N. Nettleton St., is described as a two-story, mixed-use structure with multifamily and commercial spaces.

Cash & Carry to open Coeur d’Alene store

Cash & Carry Smart Foodservice, a warehouse-format store catering to the food service industry, will open a new store in Coeur d’Alene on June 17. Located at 208 E. Appleway Ave., the Coeur d’Alene store will be Cash & Carry’s third in the region that joins two in the Spokane area.

The outlet will carry more than 8,000 products, including fresh produce, meat, cheese, dairy and deli products, frozen foods, grocery products, baking ingredients, beverages, bread and tortillas, janitorial supplies, catering supplies, tableware and bar ware.

Though Cash & Carry stores cater primarily to the food service industry, the stores are open to the public and stock items often purchased by nonprofit organizations, schools, church groups, caterers and others looking for larger product quantities.

The Coeur d’Alene store will be the company’s 61st store in the Western U.S.

Tanning salon and spa adds outlet

A Spokane tanning salon and spa has opened its third outlet.

Sunny Buns Tanning Salon and Spa recently opened in Spokane Valley at 1401 N. Argonne Road, formerly occupied by SunSational Tanning.

The additional outlet launched last month in about 3,000 square feet and with 14 tanning rooms. It has services such as spray tanning, teeth whitening, a body wrap system, and a boutique with bags, purses, swimwear, jewelry and other merchandise.

After additional interior work is completed in about a month, the new salon also will have a lash and wax bar with six technicians and a full-time esthetician to provide facials and skin care. Sunny Buns is honoring memberships from the previous salon, said co-owner Deena Treperinas.

Founded about 14 years ago by owners John and Deena Treperinas, Sunny Buns has other locations at 2821 E. 27th Ave., on the South Hill, and at 634 W. Garland, in North Spokane.
