More on Crossroads property

As the projected November opening of Coeur d'Alene's new WinCo quickly approaches, new details continue to surface about the shopping center the grocery store will anchor.

The CrossRoads commercial development is bordered by Ramsey Road to the west, Appleway to the south and Marie Avenue to the north.

The WinCo building itself is in the northeast corner of the property with five businesses attached to the west side. Two of those apparently are SuperCuts and Subway. Details on those later.

A representative of CrossRoads developer Hughes Investments says they haven't been given a firm opening date for the WinCo store, but there's been some talk about doors opening at the shopping center as early as Nov. 7.

Four future business building pads border Ramsey Road on the west and a fifth pad is in the southeast corner. Others can be added. About half of the 16-acre property is designated for parking, primarily in the center.

A population of 124,273 within a 10-mile radius; easy access to Interstate 90; and an average nearby traffic count of 42,000 vehicles per day are a few of the perks Hughes Investments lists on a promotional flier for the CrossRoads property.

STCU in southwest corner

Spokane Teachers Credit Union will build its third Kootenai County branch in Crossroads' southwest corner. The 3,500-square-foot building will have three drive-through lanes. The building pad originally was planned for Chase Bank.

Founded by educators in 1943, the STCU nonprofit cooperative has 116,000 members and 16 branch locations in North Idaho and Eastern Washington. Other local branches are in Post Falls and Dalton Gardens.

Core Accounting to Northwest Boulevard

Core Accounting and Consulting has moved from downtown Cd'A to a larger office space in Suite 106 at 1900 Northwest Blvd. Former occupant Farmers Insurance moved across the hall.

And now for the Tidbits

- As they get closer, we'll have details on natural food places The Culinary Stone in Riverstone and Vitamin Cottage south of Red Lobster in a new building where Elmer's Restaurant was.

- Jonesy's Restaurant on Sherman Avenue has closed.

- Readers ask what English "style" problem bothers me the most. I'd rate adding an unneeded "s" to the "ward" words (such as toward and forward) and misuse of "farther" and "further." "Farther" refers to distance, and "further" refers to intensity.

- Sometimes a political sign on a business can turn customers away.

- Scott Petersen is a loan officer/manager with Academy Mortgage rather than Impac Mortgage as written last week.
