The Dirt: New Quilting Bee store to resemble barn

By Treva Lind, (509) 459-5439

The Quilting Bee, a Spokane Valley business that offers quilting supplies and lessons, is building a $1 million retail structure designed to look like a country barn.

Work has started on the 11,000-square-foot, single-story building at 16002 E. Broadway Ave. The Quilting Bee, owned by Scot and Treasure Auble, stocks more than 6,000 bolts of fabric, sewing notions and supplies that include sewing, embroidery and quilting machines. It also handles machine repair and teaches about 100 classes a month.

Features of the new store include a 1,500-square-foot center for classes and special events, a kids play area and lounge called a “man cave.” McCloskey Construction is the contractor.

The Quilting Bee owners plan to move the business from leased quarters at 12117 E. Mission Ave. to the new location in February, after the structure’s expected completion.

Panera Bread, Carl’s Jr. coming to Division Street

Two new restaurants are slated for Division Street in Spokane – a Panera Bread and Carl’s Jr.

Building plans are in to the city of Spokane for the Panera Bread, to go in at 6550 N. Division St. In 2015, the chain opened a restaurant in Spokane Valley, and another location is in the works for Hayden.

The Carl’s Jr. fast-food restaurant will be built at 1230 N. Division St., with Vandervert Construction as the contractor on the $650,000 project.

The business has leased 2,500 square feet of space at 9119 E. Broadway Ave., at the north corner of Broadway and Mullan-Argonne.

Ryan Towner and Chris Bell, both of Black Commercial, were the brokers who handled the transaction.

Pat Eberlin of Kiemle & Hagood represented the tenant, and Stephen Pohl with NAI Black represented the landlord.
