KENNEWICK, WA-The Cincinnati-based Federated Department Stores, Inc. continues its expansion in the Northwest, with two new Bon Marche stores.

Both properties, currently operated by Gottschalks Inc., will undergo remodeling beginning in August and are scheduled to re-open as Bon Marche stores by late fall.

“We are very excited about opening these new stores,” says Daniel Edelman, chairman of The Bon Marche, which is owned by Federated. “Federated continues to invest in our developing Northwest market, which lets us continue to meet the growing needs of our customers.”

The new Coeur d’Alene store in the Silver Lake Mall will occupy 44,000 sf of retail space and will operate as a full-line store. The Bon Marche also will continue to operate its resort location on Sherman Avenue in downtown Coeur d’Alene.

The new Kennewick store in the Columbia Center Mall will occupy 40,000 sf of retail space. It will serve as an expansion of the existing Columbia Center store, offering enlarged assortments of men’s and children’s merchandise. The current store location will offer women’s apparel and home merchandise, as well as cosmetics, accessories, intimate apparel and shoes.

Construction of a 110,000-sf Bon Marche store at the Redmond Town Center also is expected to begin in August. The project, in the works for a couple of years, recently received a thumbs up from the city’s design review board. A Yakima store was set to open in 2001.

Until last November, the Bon Marche company, which operates nearly 50 stores in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming, hadn’t opened a new facility in four years.
