Café to open in north Spokane

Sonia Schumacher will open Ephata Café, Juice and Java in 1,040 square feet of retail space at 1908 W. Northwest Blvd. in north Spokane.

Following improvements to the building, Ephata Café expects to open in June.

The landlord and property owner is 1908 NWB LLC, which paid $390,000 for the property last year.

Nick Brumback of Brumback Commercial Real Estate, along with Colin Conway of Kiemle & Hagood and Kevin Edwards of Hawkins Edwards brokered the deal.

Silver purchases Millman building

Annette Silver, who has leased space in downtown Spokane for her business, Millman Jewelers & E-Z Loan, has purchased that building for $400,000. The seller is the Bloom-Bernheim Trust.

The building, at 407 W. Main Ave., was built in 1918 and is on the same block as two other buildings being renovated – the former Dutch’s building and the former Huppin’s retail store. Those two properties were purchased by an investment firm including Bobby Brett and Chris Batten.

The Millman building has roughly 4,200 square feet.

Chris Bell of NAI Black helped arrange the purchase.

Post Falls building sold

Sean West, owner of Captured Expressions Taxidermy, purchased a 5,700-square-foot building at 1036 N. Innovation Way in Post Falls.

West relocated the business in February from Hayden to the new building, taking about half the available space.

He purchased the building from Inland Northwest Bank, which had foreclosed on the building four years ago. The previous business in the building was Gorton Siding and Construction.

West said he’s leasing the other half of the building to Evergreen Softub, a Montana-based distributor of hot tubs.

Chris Bell of NAI Black and Paul Bielec of Coldwell Banker brokered the sale.
