While it was announced last week that Macy's will be leaving downtown Spokane, the President of the Downtown Spokane Partnership, Mark Richard, first announced Tuesday morning, live on KHQ's The Wake Up Show, that a familiar brand will be filling a void on the Bennett Block.
Carhartt, Inc. has signed a lease as the anchor tenant in the newly renovated Bennett Block, located at the corner of Main and Howard. Carhartt will occupy street-level retail and will open this fall. Current tenants in the building include Rocky Rococo Pizza, Fusion Media, Smith, Mizuna Restaurant, Indaba Coffee, Brickwall Photo Gallery, and Poplawski Law.
Carhartt is a U.S.-based clothing company founded in 1889 that focuses primarily on work clothes.
“Expanding well beyond the railroad industry, today Carhartt is a brand relied upon by the agricultural and construction industry for quality and warmth, and more recently their streetwear label has become a sought after product line for young adults wishing to sport a trendy retro-industrial style,” Richard said. “This broad consumer appeal all but ensure the new downtown retail store will be a favorite destination for shoppers of all ages and interests.”
