River Park Square expands specialty retail offerings

SPOKANE, Wash. – As the region's destination for one of a kind shopping, dining and entertainment, River Park Square's growing mix of specialty shops adds another unique offering. Oil & Vinegar, a gourmet culinary gift shop, will offer shoppers a new culinary option with vast selections of imported olive oils and vinegars, herbs, sauces and more.

"We couldn't have found a better location for Oil & Vinegar than River Park Square," said owner Jessica Winn. "River Park Square has the perfect atmosphere for our store. The two are a perfect pair." Oil & Vinegar is an experience, according to Winn. Customers can taste and sample more than 30 oils and vinegars on tap as well as other sauces and herbs.

A global franchise, Oil & Vinegar has six other locations across the globe. Jessica and her husband Michael were first introduced to Oil & Vinegar while completing their degrees at University of Montana in Missoula. When they relocated to Spokane, they decided to open a store here.

The 1,200-square-foot store, scheduled to open in May, will be located on the second level next to Nordstrom.

Among other locally-owned retail favorites is Whiz Kids, which is now under new ownership along with Children's Corner Bookstore. New owner Jan St. George will consolidate the two stores into the current Whiz Kids location. The store, which will still be called Whiz Kids, is scheduled to reopen in April.

Another local favorite, Anderson & Emami men's clothier, renewed its lease with River Park Square. The men's clothier will celebrate 25 years in business at River Park Square this fall.

"We are very excited to celebrate 25 years in business," said co-owner Gary Anderson.

"The Spokane community's loyalty and our great location downtown have been instrumental in our success."
