Empty Store Fronts Filling on Snoqualmie Ridge
It’s been a long time since the two storefronts at the corner of Kinsey Street and Center Blvd in the Snoqualmie Ridge retail area have had occupants. The two spaces adjacent Finaghty’s Irish Pub have sat vacant for about 2-3 years – ever since Emerald City Smoothie and a shoe and clothing store closed up shop. But that’s about to change in the coming months.
Snoqualmie Valley Eye Care will be relocating across the street later this spring, and according to employees, turning the two empty spaces into one, allowing the growing business and its doctors more room to see patients.
According to Snoqualmie Valley Hospital District CEO, Rodger McCollum, Snoqualmie Ridge Medical Clinic will then expand into Snoqualmie Valley Eye Care’s current space next door the busy clinic. McCollum said they will relocate Dr. Macy Fox, OB-GYN, into the newly expanded clinic. Fox is currently in a small second floor office above Finaghty’s.
New North Bend Restaurant
In North Bend, a new restaurant that had been in the works for months finally opened its doors in early December 2013.
Chang Thai & Pho is located at 131 East North Bend Way, near Selah Gifts and North Bend Bar and Grill in the heart of downtown North Bend. They’re open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner, as well as offering happy hour from 2PM – 5PM.
One Snoqualmie resident said proclaimed on Facebook that the new Thai restaurant is great and run by a nice family.
