Maverik planning convenience store, gas station in north Spokane Valley

UPDATED: Fri., Dec. 13, 2019

Maverik Inc. is continuing its expansion in the area with plans to build a convenience store and gas station across the street from the Black Pearl Poker Room & Casino in Spokane Valley.

The Salt Lake City-based company filed a preliminary application with the city to build a more than 5,600-square-foot convenience store and gas station at 2020 N. Pines Road.

Spokane Valley-based Pines Properties LLC is the property owner.

Maverik was founded in 1928 by Reuel Call, who used money earned from renting roller skates to open a two-pump gas station in Afton, Wyoming. The company has since grown to more than 315 convenience stores in 10 Western states with more than 5,000 employees.

Maverik – in addition to its three Spokane Valley convenience stores – has locations in the Spokane area, one in Cheney and one in Post Falls. – A.E.
