New store contains all you need to get organized

When Tupperware magically jumps out of cupboards and clothing slithers beneath closet doors it’s time to get organized.

Amazing-Nu’ Spaces, 12412 E. Sprague Ave,, is offering products to help the clutter-impaired embark on a less confusing life.

The store offers a combination of hangers, gadgets, accessories and organizational systems, including Easy Track closet systems, to simplify homes and garages.

Just measure a closet or problem area and Susy Hansen, one of the storeowners, can help figure out a solution.

“It’s just kind of a personal little store,” Hansen said.

She takes closet dimensions and creates computerized images of how the final shelves, bars, nooks and crannies will look.

Garages also can be decluttered with the help of wall organizers. Old floors can get an easy update with snap together floor tiles made by RaceDeck floor covering systems.

Shoppers can purchase materials to assemble the organizers themselves or chose from a list of contractors.

Many of the products are made in America and come from local distributors, she said.

The store also carries 17 different colors of duct tape. Hansen said tape even comes in florescent pink and is the latest craze for kids who use it to create fun accessories with the tape.

“We have some bracelets made out of duct tape, we have a purse and a tie,” she said.

Amazing-Nu’ Spaces is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday’s temporary hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Tile store opens in Spokane Valley

People interested in renovating or building homes and businesses have a new source for tile, stone and supplies.

Tile Outlet: Always in Stock recently opened at 5320 E. Sprague Ave.

The store has more than 2,500 square feet of showroom packed with tiles for floors, counter tops and walls. Selections include ceramic, porcelain, granite, natural stone, marble, sandstone and slate tiles that come in varying sizes and colors.

“We don’t do any discontinued stuff. We’re Grade-A or Grade-1 quality,” said Steve Modderman, who owns the store with his brothers Rob and Nate, and his sister, Melanie.

Tile Outlet is part of a franchise with 62 stores located in seven western states.

Modderman said the store offers specialty store selections and personalized service with home improvement center pricing.

“We’re going to help you from start to finish when you walk in the door,” he said.

The store is putting together a list of qualified installers, however, two of the owners are general contractors, so employees know how to help do-it-yourselfers.

“We try to get people to do it themselves. If you can understand the concept, it’s easy, and you can save a lot of money,” he said.

The store is open Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
