The Hastings chain is in it's final days , leaving some more empty retail spaces around the Inland Northwest. But there is one store space that won't be vacant very long and will actually be filled by a very similar yet still expanding chain. The Coeur d' Alene Hastings store at 101 E. Best Ave ( Coeur d' Alene Town Center shopping center) will be immediately converted into a new location for Vintage Stock upon Hastings closure towards the end of October. Vintage Stock is a Missouri based retail chain that just recently celebrated opening their 50th location. The chain is very similar to Hastings and the new Vintage Stock store is hoping to open for business as soon as mid-November. Vintage Stock is hiring and says that Hastings employees that wanted to stay on we're invited to do so/InlandNWBusiness.com. More here.
